Gina enjoys playing basketball, tennis and teaming up for a game of volleyball every now and then. She loves her four-legged child, Bella who becomes her partner in crime for running and traveling. Though she does not have a ton of time for site seeing she is a world traveler with the sport karate taking her to places such as Mexico, Canada and Ireland with plans to travel to Scotland along with many destinations within the continental United States. Just ask her about her flying experience but be ready for some serious story time!
