Hey there, I'm Gina.

I'm a writer whose favorite topics include social media, mental health, intentional living, and distance running (in any combination!) I have worked with clients including Fitt.co, the University of Minnesota, and Delta Sky. Check out some of my writing below!

I'm a storyteller. I want to share my perspective. I want to make dense topics easy to understand. I want to make you fall in love with 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. Feel free to check out some of my work below.

I'm also... The heaviest sleeper you will ever meet. Guilty of ordering Shirley Temples during Happy Hour. Probably watching (or quoting) The Office. Fueled by cold press. Perpetually panicking about something I read on an online health forum. Never able to travel anywhere without forgetting my toothbrush. Off the social media grid. A three-time marathoner. Probably trying to get out of Friday night plans so I can watch baking shows and eat ice cream in my pajamas.
