Georgina currently calls San Francisco, California home, but considers herself a global citizen. Training her mind has always been as equally important as training her body. She regularly practices meditation, yoga, and taken a strong interest in mindfulness teachings.
Georgina often says the biggest mountain she has ever climbed is not Everest, but rather starting her own business. In 2017, she completed the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center's Milestone Makers Program. Here she is featured in Times Square.

Georgina's career spans from leading teams in the corporate world, to founding start-ups, to management consulting at various Fortune 500 companies globally.

Everest and many other peaks around the world to raise awareness around gender-based violence. She is currently in the process of completing the Explorer Grand Slam.
Although Georgina did not discover her love for the outdoors until her mid-twenties, she credits the mountains and a life of adventure to shaping who she is today. Her mission now is to share the gift of adventure with others.
