Elementary Youth and Family Engagement Specialist (Uniondale)
“Do not give your past the power to define your future.” - Unknown
Gina grew up in Plainview with a big family who has continued to motivate her to never give up. From a young age Gina knew she wanted to work with children in some capacity. After having an opportunity to intern and work at Lawrence Rd Middle School in Uniondale, NY, she knew she wanted to continue to work within the Uniondale community.
After taking an Adolescent Criminology class Gina became fascinated with learning more about the juvenile justice system and how she could help prevent children from entering the system. She graduated from Hofstra University in May 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Criminology and went on to obtain her Masters from Hofstra University in December 2016 in counseling. Gina is currently a certified School Counselor.
Gina joined the S.T.R.O.N.G. family in October 2017 and is excited to see where this journey brings her.
Gina enjoys the summer, sports and anything outdoors.
