A travel junkie, Gina likes exploring life and culture, and always remembers that with a small amount of imagination you can find the joy in everything. She graduated from Florida State University with a major in accounting and a minor in art and Spanish. After studying abroad in Spain during her freshman year in college, she became obsessed with travel and experiencing other cultures. As such, she lived in Perth, Australia for a little under four years and London, England for two years. She prides herself on being able to speak the nuances of American, British, and Australian English and being able to drive on the right- or left-hand side of the road. Once an avid scuba diver, she now focuses her efforts aboveground, exploring the wonderful hiking that North Carolina has to offer. Her current goals include experiencing four new countries in the next three years, which would bring her total countries visited to 50, and to hike the Inca Trail.
