Program
Gina gave us her classification talk.  She lived with her grandparents for years when her father was serving tours in Vietnam.  Her grandmother was a founder of Great Bay Services providing support to adults with disabilities in the Seacoast since the 1960's.  Gina often chipped in running the program, and helping others became a theme in her life from this experience.
 
Gina's professional life started at Pease working at a little bank there.  After she married, they moved to New York state where she found work in a bank in Highland, across the river from President Roosevelt's home at Hyde Park.  She says that ended when the FBI came in one morning and removed a large number of safe deposit boxes rumored to have a connection to the Mafia.  She returned to Newfields to raise two daughters and two step children.  Each of her daughters has given her a grandchild now.
 
While raising her family, she worked with autistic children for six years, in Americorps for another, and advocated for Safe Place clients in court.  She returned to banking with TD which was robbed twice while she was there.  She found Federal Savings was a better fit for her inasmuch as it supports local charities.
 
Gina enjoys cooking and photography, and likes to travel with Domenick every Fall to places like Ireland, Spain and the UK.
