Virginia Aguirrebeitia
FOUNDER & CHIEF POD OFFICER 

Virginia “Giny” Aguirrebeitia, a native of Caracas, Venezuela, moved to the United States to finish up her studies in the year 2000. She followed her dream of working in Advertising and had a blast doing all things marketing for Fortune 500 companies in New York City, Boston, and Miami.

While corporate was fun and airline elite status a bliss, Giny found herself in a pickle as a mom. In marketing terms, she figured she, as a parent, was an “underserved segment”. Giny felt most services geared at families really targeted the kids and not the adults. Even more, she realized that one the of top complaints modern families have is lack of Time. In light of this Giny figured she could actually challenge herself to create a space where the needs for Parents (as individuals) could be met. Voila. POD 22 was born. A place where the whole family has me-time and we-time simultaneously. No more guilt, just fun and relax.

Giny holds a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications from Emerson College (Boston, MA), and a Master of Arts in Global Marketing Communications & Advertising from Emerson College as well. She lives in Miami Shores with her husband David & their two kids Emma and Andres.
