A communication specialist, Gina is a Senior Public Communication major and Italian Studies minor at Truman State University. She has a strong interest in event planning and public relations and has had substantial experience in both.
During summer 2009, she flew to Gallarate, Italy for six weeks where she lived in a convent and did general office work for a nearby firm. Although she went to Italy not knowing anyone, she now stays in contact with many of her coworkers and intends to visit them in Gallarate in the near future.
One of Gina's goals is to permanently move to Italy and to be able to work as a communication specialist while enjoying the Mediterranean Sea and pasta al pesto.
