Meet the Instructor
Gina grew up exploring the wetlands and coastline of southern Rhode Island and then the rocky outcrops of New England through the earth science and geology program at Brown University. Gina’s passion for field-based education led her across the country, where she worked as a naturalist and educator in the Colorado Plateau, Snake River Plain, the Klamath-Siskiyou mountains, and the North Cascades. In each of these places, she taught thousands of youth and adults about earth science in a variety of field-based and classroom settings. She received a Master's in Education from Western Washington University in a joint program with The North Cascades Institute.
Gina currently lives in Portland, Oregon, where she works as an educator with the Mount St. Helens Institute coordinating field trips and teaching about community resilience and volcanic hazards. Gina strongly believes in the value of education to inspire awareness, appreciation, and stewardship of the natural world. When Gina’s not thinking about volcanoes, you’ll most often find her enjoying the company of birds, foraging native foods, and riding her bicycle.
