This week I speak with Gina Marie Alber, an Employer Consultant with Ivy Tech Community College: Valparaiso / Michigan City / La Porte who helps find workforce solutions to help companies grow! Gina’s path to her current role has been fueled by her strong devotion to education and helping others. Inspired by Silence of the Lambs, she got a Criminal Justice degree with the idea that one day she might be able to help long term prisoners turn their lives around. Drawn to the psychological component, she eventually worked in the field of developmental disabilities in many different capacities. Now, she helps upskill workforces and strongly believes that education is the mechanism for self-improvement that can lead to life changes you never thought possible.
Learn more about Gina’s journey, the ups and downs, and the importance of staying open and curious when what you least expect… shows up!
