Gina was born in Pueblo, Colorado and moved to Colorado Spring when she was seven. She graduated from Doherty High School some time in the seventies. Gina then went on to graduate from the University of Colorado, Boulder (Go Buffs!) in the 80’s with a BS in Education. She has been teaching math and science to at-risk middle and high school students for 28 years. She has two children, Sarah (22) and David (17), two step-children, and a wonderful husband, Kevin. In her free time she loves to spend time with family and friends, cook, and ride on the back of her husband’s Harley. In the future she looks forward to traveling, learning to speak more Italian, and possibly opening her own Italian restaurant someday!
