Georgina lives by her motto, “The extraordinary is always possible, never limit yourself or life’s potential. This belief has taken her from not being able to run a mile to scaling the highest peaks on earth, including Mt. Everest in an effort to raise awareness around gender-based violence and climate change. Georgina is a social entrepreneur, adventurer, public speaker, consultant, coach, writer, and activist combining over a decade of Corporate, Start-up, and Adventure experience. She is a social innovator working to accelerate gender equality globally and exploring new ways to unleash full human potential in life and business from a holistic mind, body, spirit approach to benefit the collective good. The world is changing at a rapid pace and asking of us for more global and social consciousness in how we live, work and preserve our earth.
She is the founder and CEO of She Ventures, a social enterprise accelerating gender equality globally with an event series, media platform, coaching and consultancy practice, and network. She is an accomplished adventurer 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. 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. 1 in 3 women will experience gender-based violence in their lifetime. Arctic sea ice is melting at an alarming rate- 12% per decade.
Georgina has led and advised cross-functional teams and clients in Fortune 500 companies globally, with a focus on transforming performance and developing company culture. Her years as a management consultant stressed the importance of making people the priority of any strategy, as people are at the core of any successful business. 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 in the world. She’s 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 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.
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.
