I'm Gina & I'm


you are here...

I really mean that.

It is humbling every time I make a new connection. There are so many amazing people in the world, doing amazing things, and you decided to land here.

I like to think it is the universe speaking.

And if the universe brought you here, I already know something about you…

You are a fierce, vibrant, tenacious woman with limitless potential and distinctive talents to share.

You have a vision and are making incredible contributions to our world (whether you realize it or not!).

The bottom line, if we are going to live out our missions and move beyond the daily grind, we must choose to grow.

The growth of your career, your business, your family, and all your relationships can only grow if you do.

And that is where our work begins together.

Create the Life You Want

Over the last thirty years, I’ve made more wrong turns than I care to admit. But what I’ve learned is that we can re-launch our lives, choose our own mission, and wake up every day excited to get out of bed.

I’m here to guide you on this journey and help you access the resources you need that will allow you to:

  • Shift your mindset, let go of self-limiting beliefs, and change your narrative
  • Embrace your authentic self, recognize your strengths and gifts, and put them into action
  • Define what it is you truly want and why
  • Actualize your vision and create the life you want

It is a privilege to connect with other women on a similar path. I've been mentoring and teaching at the university level for more than two decades and have coached thousands of women across the globe on their transformational journeys.

My work is grounded in honesty, authenticity, compassion, and emotional intelligence.

I have a lot to say, but the real backbone of my work

is my Manifesta

We are our most valuable assets.

So we must choose, embrace, and invest in ourselves;

Honor and celebrate our authenticity;

And recognize and revel in our strengths.

We must be confident in who we are,

Value our abilities

And acknowledge our mission and purpose.

We must understand ourselves as whole persons

With the ability to grow and transform in holistic ways

And create the lives that we want and love.

Now more than ever,

The world needs strong, confident,

Emotionally intelligent women

Who are willing to lead.

Therefore, we won’t wish, we will do.

And we will lead without limits.

Experience + Credibility

A little about me & My Journey

Audacity + Grit

I’ve overcome the greatest of obstacles to persevere in my journey.

I created a life that I want – and that I love.

I went from being a high school dropout to earning a Ph.D., M.B.A., publishing five books, giving a TEDx Talk, and speaking at the Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations.

I have been privileged to share in the learning and growth journeys of thousands of women – many of whom have kept touch over the years.

I moved beyond the tragic and untimely death of my mother and a decade long infertility struggle to adopt my daughter who is the love of my life; despite the gray hair she has given me!

But it was after being blindsided by the abrupt ending of my 17-year marriage and gaining the new identity of “single mom” that I found my voice and my authentic self. I learned to stand on my own two feet while living out my values and being an example for my daughter.

It's been a rollercoaster for sure!

It is because of this journey that I am passionate about supporting women. I’ve been there, I’ve learned the ropes, and I am excited to share that knowledge to help you lead without limits so you don’t have to spend thirty years figuring it out!

Most recently, I founded Gig Mama to offer resources, services, and community for all of us "gig mamas" out there who need some support.

I believe we should all have the opportunity to hustle less and have the time to appreciate the wonders of life.

I come from a place of compassion and genuineness. Connecting with and supporting diverse women in our journeys is my path and a critical component of creating the life I love. Galvanizing women to create the change we want is my manifesta.

I can't wait to support you in creating the life you want!
