Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Gina decided to switch gears from assisting humans to helping animals, leading her to join Orchard Hills Animal Hospital as a receptionist. Her love for animals began in her childhood, rescuing strays and injured animals and finding them loving homes. Gina continues to volunteer at animal rescue shelters when possible. Her pet family includes Banshee Roo, the goofy 1-year-old pup; Aria, who is training to be a security dog; Hobbes, her hiking buddy; and Wrangler, the rescue cat. Gina loves spending her free time outdoors, with family, and volunteering in various places.
