Tony FlammiaSpotlight

Todays #NRVTAFamFriday is with the one and only Gina Allyne

What is your title?

Administrative Assistant for Big Red School House & National RV Training Academy.

What do you do at your job day to day?

A little bit of everything around here. I start out the day coming in early and making sure coffee is ready for our students and then go up to my office to answer emails, handle student registration, make sure all of the prints are ready to go, create certificates, grade home study course exams, and file everything away to its place. I also run the live chat feature of our website. When I am not doing these things, I am downstairs helping the instructors with whatever they need. 

How long have you been employed? 

Since January of 2017. 

What‘s your favorite thing about your job? 

I love being able to work alongside my mom, Lady E! 

What was your first RV? 

Growing up, we had a small pop-out camper that we would take to Colorado & New Mexico. When I was 15, my parents bought a bigger pop-out…it was the first year that king size beds in pop-outs came out and I loved it. 

What’s your dream RV and where would you go with it? 

I have always wanted a toy hauler that also has a side porch. I would take it to Montana to Glacier National Park, my favorite place! 

What’s your favorite tip or trick you have learned working at the NRVTA? 

Kindness and teamwork are a must! I love my team here at the NRVTA.  

Tell us about a favorite successful moment at your work? 

Earlier this year, when Covid19 shut us down physically, we were able to create a Hybrid course that was beyond successful and it was such a blessing. 

What are you currently working on? 

I am a very organizational person, so I have been working on getting the offices managed to be as efficient as possible. 

Whats next? 

I have been thinking about ways I could become better at my job. I want to be able to answer any and every question a student or potential student might ask me. So, I am wanting to sit in on all of the courses here at the NRVTA and learn a little thing or two! 

Favorite tips on RVing? 

From personal experience, check your tires! After having two blow outs in one day, I can’t stress this enough! 

Anything you would like to share? 

I love my job and being able to help others get one step closer to their RV related goals. 

Where can we find you on social?
