Senior Visual Designer, Allstate
Gina started her art training early in life when her mother taught her to draw before she could barely hold a pencil. Since then she’s continued to love all things related to art and design.
Her formal education includes photography and design studies at the University of Massachusetts, with multiple Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Photography, Electronic Imaging, and Illustration. She also achieved magna cum laude in Photography and Electronic Imaging (which made her mother very proud).
Gina considers herself a life-long learner and recently completed a master’s degree in Human and Computer Interaction at Iowa State University’s School of Engineering.
In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, yoga, and spending time sitting on her patio drinking craft beer with friends and family.
