My name is Gina Stafford, and I am a strategic communication professional with more than 20 years of wide-ranging experience. I began my career as a print news reporter and today am assistant vice chancellor for communications and marketing at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

I’m a first-generation college graduate proud to have earned degrees from both Tennessee Tech University and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

I’m also a seeker, a wife, and a caretaker to three rescue cats. I’m an avid hiker who’d rather be outside than almost anywhere else under almost any circumstances. I’m a photography enthusiast, a writer, and a music lover.

Periodically, I’ll share some words, pictures, or both here. All photos, video and writing that appear on this site are my work, unless stated otherwise. I’d be glad to hear what you think about it.
