S3 Ep7: Gina Horwitz
It’s a big day everyone!! Today we have my MOM on the pod!! And, it is so so fitting because my mom, Gina Horwitz, just recently retired!! And even better, I got to sit down with her in person to do this interview!
My Mom spent the past 12 years at Wayne State University in Detroit, where she was the associate director of philanthropy and alumni relations at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Growing up, mom was around, she was a homemaker raising us 3 kids, and she was extremely busy in her volunteer work– she was always chairing different events and fundraisers, working with various causes, just always doing so much for others and the community. She ended up going back into the workforce when I was in high school.
I am so beyond proud of her- her bravery for putting herself out there, her confidence in herself and in what she is doing, seeing her truly thrive in a different career path and become a heavy hitter has been amazing.
In this episode, we talk about what “work” really means and how our society values getting PAID for what we do, we discuss how mom took years and years of volunteer experience and the skills she learned there and transferred them into a new career path, we hash out the topic that many people are uncomfortable with – which is asking others for money, chat about how we can create a culture of giving amongst young people, and so much more!
Mom is the epitome of what it means to be a mensch, what it means to do good, what it means to be unapologetically yourself. Please meet my mom, Gina Horwitz!

*This episode discusses child sexual abuse. Listener discretion is advised*
A few things have changed since Amy and I recorded this episode. Amy left her day job and is now working on ACV full-time which is super exciting. Another very important update is that ACV which once focused on supporting adult survivors has had to shift its focus more toward children because there really aren’t any funds available that support adult survivors. ACV is still working with survivors, but implementing a curriculum with youth programs and schools to raise awareness and educate children and families.
