Gina Carter 

Project Coordinator 

A passionate education advocate, systems thinker and technical whiz, Gina came to Uncommon with a background organizing and coordinating programming and large-scale events for non-profit and academic organizations. She spent 6 years growing programs and opportunities for women in engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, and also served as the communications lead for a national non-profit connecting K-12 schools, higher education institutions, companies, organizations and individuals committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in STEM.

Gina is impact-driven and sees a need for business perspectives in non-profit work. Completing her MBA in 2018, she is able to jump deftly into projects and make sense of the myriad details with speed and insight while elevating the great work already being done. She loves working at Uncommon because the team’s varied strengths and backgrounds allow it to tailor the work to fit the client, which allows the impact to be even greater.

When not at Uncommon, Gina can either be found with her nose in a book or exploring all of the great coffee venues that Seattle has to offer along with her husband Eric and corgi Phoebe. They also are searching for the best TexMex, barbeque, queso, and breakfast tacos in Seattle, so if you have intel on these, please drop her a line.
