I am currently a physiology major at the University of Arizona. My favorite hobbies growing up and throughout high school were rodeo and basketball. I have been a junior and high school rodeo champion in all five girls events and was voted varsity basketball defensive player of the year senior year of high school. I became involved with ITK in 2011 and volunteered at her first retreat in April. The experience helped me to expand my knowledge of integrative healing techniques and the children touched my heart. I look forward to developing relationships with all the families at future retreats.
Hi, my name is Genna Dreier and I am a Marketing Major at the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona. I have volunteered with ITK for the past three years. I enjoy outdoor activities, gymnastics, and meeting new people. In the past, I have worked with children who have down syndrome and cystic fibrosis. I can’t wait to meet all of my future “monkeys” and to learn what makes each and every one of them unique.
Hi! My name is Gina Simpson. I enjoy cooking and reading. I first got involved with ITK in 2009 for their first retreat. This organization means so much to me because my younger brother was born with disabilities. I am currently studying at the University of Arizona to become a special education teacher.
I currently attend the University of Arizona Honors College. I graduated from Salpointe Catholic High School as a Salpointe Scholar, and as a National Honors Society Member. I began soccer when I was four and play both for a club team and for my school. Also this year as a member of National Charity League I completed 60 hours of volunteering through different philanthropies such as the nursery in Tucson Medical Center, the Community Food Bank, Race for the Cure, Tu Nudito, the Ronald McDonald House, and my favorite, Integrative Touch for Kids!!
