Gina Girardi is a former Nassau County Girl Scout and former member of Troop 2188 who received her Gold Award in 2012.

For her Gold award project, she continued with the theme of healthy eating that she had delved into as part of her Gold Award prerequisites. Working with a nutritionist, Gina put together an informative presentation on healthy eating and the components of a healthy diet that she delivered to many groups throughout Nassau County, including Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, a local Homemakers group and a group at Lynbrook Library. As part of her presentations, Gina included a demonstration of smoothie making, using fruit, yogurt and milk and encouraged groups to participate. Gina gave her groups not only the recipes for Smoothies, but lasting memories of how delicious healthy eating can be.
