Getting to know Gina

If you were not a lawyer what job would you do? 

Paramedic – seems exciting and would love to drive with lights and sirens.

If you were given a day off work where would we find you?

Ideally on a sunny beach, realistically entertaining the two kids, doing housework or walking the dog.

What can you do that no one else in the office can do?

Scuba dive.

If you could go back in history to a specific date or time, what would it be?

The 1960’s for the fashion and it was an exciting time for exploration & progress with moon landings and civil rights movement.

Where in the world would you most like to visit?

I would like to visit Lapland so the kids can meet Santa while they’re still young and I can see the northern lights and ride a husky sledge.
