She is the founder and CEO of She Ventures, a global social enterprise accelerating gender equality and the wellbeing of women-unleashing the untapped power of women because it's good for the world. She is an accomplished adventurer/mountaineer in the process of completing the Explorer Grand Slam (8 Summits + 2 Poles Around the Globe). A feat which less than 15 women globally have completed in effort to raise awareness around gender-based violence and climate change. With just 3 expeditions remaining, she is soliciting sponsorships to complete the project. This project shares the voices and stories of women and places at risk.
Georgina has started 3 companies and spent a decade as a management consultant focusing on transforming performance, developing leaders and company culture. These experiences have stressed the importance of making people the priority of any strategy, as people are at the core of any successful business, as is their wellbeing. She focuses a lot of her work on teaching about mindfulness, calling it the "key to transforming performance and behaviors."
She holds an MBA from Loyola Marymount University and is a graduate of the The Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center Milestone Maker Program in San Francisco.
She firmly believes that women are the world's largest untapped resource and that given equal opportunities, women hold the key to being the largest contributors of positive economic, social, and environmental change globally. She is on a mission to do her part to change this statistic.
Georgina credits the mountains, nature, a life of adventure, and the inward spiritual journey this has all sparked to shaping who she is today. She is passionate about sharing the gift of adventure, mindfulness, and wellness with others to help them unleash their power within and enjoy life more fully.
Georgina is an avid mountaineer, skier, traveler, yogi, meditator, reiki practitioner, and overall adventurer inside and out. She uses her voice and adventures to advocate for women’s rights and equality, climate change, and mental wellness.
As a Latina born in Los Angeles to Nicaraguan and El Salvadorian parents, she also believes in boosting diversity of women and minorities across all industries in leadership roles and beyond. She might be considered your unlikely adventurer, but she is proof that adventure is for everyone and that it changes lives. Adventure has been her confirmation of her life motto: The extraordinary is always possible, never limit yourself or life's potential.
