Carina is our new Outreach Coordinator, joining the staff on March 28, 2022. She will be executing the organization’s marketing and communications strategies as well as overseeing a wide variety of committees, events, and programs.
Carina grew up in the Central Valley of California, near NAS Lemoore. In high school she moved to a small rural town in the middle of Iowa (Go Hawks!). After graduating high school she made her way back to the Ritz and Glitz of Central California. In 2004 she decided she needed a change, and found her way to the Hampton Roads area of Chesapeake. This is where she met her husband and in 2005 began the life of a Navy Wife. They began their Navy life in Brunswick, Maine, then she found herself back yet again in Lemoore California. While there Carina attended West Hills Community College and got her AA in Business Bookkeeping. They then continued their journey with the Navy to Honolulu, Hawaii. As with most Navy lifestyles there came another move, brining them back to Hampton Roads in 2016.
Carina has over 20 years of management experience, to include event planning, and organization to ensure all is ran well under her watch. In her spare time Carina enjoys photography, working in her garden and traveling with her husband Chris and Jack Russle Terrier, Nalla. She is excited to begin her adventure with VSRA.
