Hey there, I'm Gina.

I'm a writer whose favorite topics include social media, mental health, and distance running. My work has appeared in The Everygirl, Huffington Post, Fitt.co, and Delta Sky magazine, among other publications.

I'm a storyteller. I want to share my perspective. I want to make dense topics easy to understand. I want to connect you to the people around you. I want to tell stories in ways they haven't been told before. 

I'm a goal-setter whose ultimate goal is to write personality profiles for a living. I love totally immersing myself in a story and weaving details together. It's like a kind of math I'm actually good at. Check out some of my work below!

I'm also... A North Star native in the Lone Star state. The heaviest sleeper you will ever meet. Guilty of ordering Shirley Temples during Happy Hour. Probably watching (or quoting) The Office. Fueled by iced coffee. Perpetually panicking about something I read on an online health forum. Off the social media grid. Prepping for marathon number five. Probably trying to get out of Friday night plans so I can do a puzzle and eat ice cream in my pajamas.
