A frequent visitor to Nantucket since 1989, Virna Gonzalez received her B.F.A. from St. John's University. From there, she began her New York City graphic design career in areas of television, software manufacturing, book publishing, and promotional advertising before running her own design firm for several years. She traded her urban life in 2002 to find a new home in the bucolic beauty that is Nantucket within its incredibly welcoming community.

In 2008, Virna joined the ReMain team. As Program and Marketing Manager, she applies her skills to support ReMain's colorfully diverse projects that benefit the Nantucket community especially in the areas of plastics reduction education and awareness, sustainability support, grant management, and cultural programming. She has served on the boards of the Nantucket Arts Council and the Nantucket Education Trust. She currently serves as an Advisor for the Nantucket Cultural District.
