Gina Robinson


Employment Specialist

Prior to working at Stand Up, Inc. I worked in various social service positions in different areas of the county. In South Carolina I worked as a Health Educator for the Department of Health and Environmental Control. In Wisconsin I worked as a Financial Eligibility Specialist for the Wisconsin Works (W-2) program and I worked as a Title IV-E Eligibility Specialist for Wisconsin’s Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare.

Why did I choose this field? I became an advocate for others initially because my mother suffered from mental illness and I inherently wanted to protect the part of my mother that I knew to be loving, engaging and was a vital part of her community.

Favorite Quote:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails….” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Hobbies:

Church ministries, running..ok maybe like walking and spending time with my husband.
