About

Hi, I’m Gina!

I’m a professional full-time traveller. All my life all I have wanted to do is travel, see the world, explore cultures, meet people and LEARN.

Let me show you how I have created my travel lifestyle so I make a sustainable (money-making) living traveling and going on vacation. I’ve been taking FREE vacations for over twenty-five years and have traveled to 93 countries & all 50 states. I’m a nationally recognized travel expert, writer, and professional speaker. I now teach programs in over 90 cities nationwide. I created my company, Go Global, Inc., to help people find affordable ways to support their travel habit. I gave up a successful – and stressful – advertising career in New York City to pursue this travel passion.

Growing up in a small Midwest town (Maryville, MO), I always knew I wanted to see the world and go everywhere.  I now teach my 3 hour class in 90 cities nationwide helping others create their sustainable (money-making) travel lifestyle so they can have the time & money to travel as much as they want. Two times a year I take people with me on group tours to Thailand, Peru, and other destinations. I lived in Austin, Texas for fifteen years and recently relocated to Nacogdoches, Texas to spend more time with my 84-year young parents (in between my trips). I teach four months a year throughout the USA.  I live in Thailand two months yearly. The rest of the year I travel to new destinations for FREE, often earning extra income on vacation! I’m always researching new travel opportunities and ways for us to support our travel habit. I’m also a professional mystery shopper, world-wide importer, tour director and international English teacher. I hold a master’s in International Management from Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management in Arizona.

Gina’s many ideas on traveling for FREE were consolidated into 3 hours. It would have taken me hundreds of hours to get the same information!
