Hi, I'm Gina Mehmert!


Gina Mehmert, MBA, district parent, experienced FFO President, dedicated school volunteer

I'm grateful to have the opportunity to run for a seat on Catalina Foothills School District's Governing Board.

I’m a district mom, a dedicated school volunteer, and a marketing professional. I'm naturally a collaborator, a communicator, and an inspirational leader. 


During my career, I've held marketing leadership roles with global brand leaders like Hewlett Packard and GE Healthcare. I’ve also dedicated my volunteer time to our CFSD schools, including 13 years in classrooms and on campus, and 4 years as President and Past President of Orange Grove's FFO (Family Faculty Organization). 


I’m running for CFSD’s Governing Board because I believe every student deserves an equal opportunity to thrive - regardless of race or ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, zip code, or physical or academic ability. My goal as a future school board member is to help foster an inclusive environment in each of our schools - an environment where every student, every parent, every teacher, every aide, and every staff member feels seen, heard, and engaged.  

My commitment to you

As an elected, non-partisan member of CFSD's Governing Board, I will work closely with my colleagues on the Board, the administration and teachers, and parents and community members to deliver on my commitments to you.

Advocate for more mental health support for our students and faculty

Engage our community to understand what additional support we need, and identifying specific ways to deliver that support

Foster an inclusive environment where every student has an equal opportunity to thrive

Regardless of race or ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, zipcode, physical or academic ability

Renew and strengthen the relationship between the Board and parents

Actively listening to parents' concerns, making objective and informed decisions, and leading with empathy

Let's get to know each other!
