Gina grew up in Dade City, Florida as the oldest of six children. Her studies and career led her to Orlando and North Carolina before returning to Florida to call St. Petersburg home. She has lived downtown in District 6 since 2006. Gina makes the most of everything that makes St. Pete special – you’ll find her walking her two dachshunds along the waterfront, using bike share to meet with friends, strolling shops and galleries during ArtWalk, or working on her game at the famous historic Shuffleboard Club.
