Gina was born and raised in Madison, WI and has helped individuals take the next step in their career for close to 15 years. While working in the Human Resources field for a few years, she became interested in the hiring process and helping people promote themselves to obtain employment. She was lucky enough to find a job managing the alumni career services program for the Wisconsin Alumni Association, when she discovered her love of career development, and where she helped hundreds of clients in job search strategies, resume perfecting and general employment services.
She is now Director of Career Management at the Wisconsin School of Business, where she leads the team charged with employer development and student services, while also helping future business leaders find relevant and meaningful employment. She founded CareerLight, LLC (now Gina Jenkins Coaching and Consulting, LLC) in 2013 to utilize her experience in human resources, career development and 1000+ resume reviews to work for the local community and job seekers nationwide.
