Secretary, Second Vice President
Gigi Loh became acquainted with IHN through volunteering during the hosting weeks at Morrow Memorial Church in Maplewood. With two young children, she thought it would serve the dual purpose of helping others while educating her children. In so doing, she realized there were more similarities than differences between her family and those who were in the program. She believes that IHN is a small organization with huge impact, providing services and temporary housing to families during hard times. Assisting families to stay together is vital to a hopeful future.
Gigi holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and MBA in Finance/International Business from NYU Stern. In a past life, she worked in the US and Asia in production management and financial advisory/syndications for large-scale limited recourse projects.
Gigi lives with her husband and two children in Maplewood. In her spare time, she loves to cook, play tennis and travel, anywhere and everywhere.
