Founder & Secretary

A native New Yorker, Gina enjoyed a 30-year career as a professor of French, Romance linguist, writer and lecturer. During this time, her career took her from Michigan State University, to Washington University-St. Louis, to Southern California, the University of Michigan, and the Ann Arbor public schools.

Gina has also enjoyed coaching, from a basketball team to an award-winning Science Olympiad team, and serving on the Parent Admissions Board and Parent Council at Washington University in St. Louis.

Coming to Rancho Santa Fe after retiring, and actively pursuing fundraising opportunities for local charities was a dream-come-true for Gina. She is an Advisory Board member of the FACE Foundation for Animals and enjoys working with her dear friends of the Tea3 Foundation to make a difference to the lives of children, military families and animals. In recognition for her work she received the prestigious Mabel Jessup Award for Community Service, a most cherished honor.
