Gina Zaffino, Ph.D.

Professor: Business Communications and Executive Presence


Gina Zaffino, Ph.D. Gina Zaffino began her career in advertising and merchandising working for a news corporation. She used her company’s tuition assistance program to subsidize an MBA that she earned in just two years. Looking for the next challenge she pursued a doctoral degree which provided an opportunity to conduct women’s leadership research in Ghana, Africa.

Gina has worked in numerous higher educational roles, but her passion lies in both teaching and international education. This year, she developed and taught a workshop in Thailand focused on helping girls build their confidence through goal attainment.

She lives in Northern Virginia. Her hobbies include running, yoga, spinning/cycling, reading, playing with her new puppy, and traveling (when time allows).
