Gia is the daughter of immigrant parents who taught her the values of hard work, determination, and grit. She was born in the Philippines, then moved to Nebraska as a toddler before finding herself on a tour of the southeastern United States as a military brat (FL, AL, GA). She graduated with a BA in Musical Theatre and Communication Studies from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide). She then ventured to the open seas with Disney Cruise Line as a performer before landing on the island of Manhattan. She lived in New York City for 5 years, a city that will always have a piece of her heart.
Prior to Greenhouse Scholars, she was with the Events team at Warburg Pincus, a global private equity firm. Gia is now based in Denver and is thrilled to join the Greenhouse Scholars team. In her spare time, you can find her trying to pet all the puppies since she doesn’t have one of her own (yet). She also loves SoulCycle, discovering new restaurants, exploring new places and unique cultures around the world, and getting lost in a good book.
