Gina Dettmer met Yvette Mohbashi while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon. They started working to make education and healthcare accessible to women and children in Yvette's village and have been working together ever since, founding Bright Minds in 2018. As Outreach Coordinator, Gina gets to collaborate with the incredible individuals, organizations, and schools that support Bright Minds. She is proud to be part of an amazing team of West African staff and international interns, and she is grateful to be part of meaningful change in the world. When Gina is not working with Bright Minds, she enjoys swimming, running in Redwood Regional Park, and backpacking. She teaches yoga and coordinates a weekly writing workshop for writers in the  San Francisco Bay Area.
