Passionate About Inspiring Others

Gina is passionate about sharing her programs and services and believes in paying it forward. As an at-risk teenager, she struggled to overcome the odds stacked against her. Gina was a teen mom and has devoted most of her adult life to sharing her life experiences of struggle and growth to bring awareness about the importance of self-love, personal growth, emotional healing, and good mental health. She is often associated with community volunteer opportunities that are aligned with empowering the vulnerable population of at-risk families. 

Gina has also been affiliated with ministries, nonprofit organizations, continuation high schools, social services, and other groups that support at-risk moms and their children. In fall 2019 she was featured in VoyageLA magazine, and was recognized as a trailblazer in her profession.

“I met Gina as a facilitator and I really appreciate her style.  She never talks down to us or forces us to share difficult parts of our lives. She shares her journey in the hopes that it will help at least one girl in the room. I was completely elated when she was paired to be my mentor!  Gina is a real person who shares hope and solutions by sharing her own struggles and how she overcame them.”
