Gina spent years struggling with her body confidence, relationship with food, and overall self-image. But she truly believes her journey has led her to this point: to help others make peace with food, trust their bodies, and heal from the inside out.
Growing up in rural Nebraska, the only vegetables on her plate were typically covered in cheese. Although health wasn’t a top priority at the time, being thin was. At age 12, Gina lost 15 pounds in two months as a result of extreme dieting and exercise, only to set off a host of digestive and hormonal issues for the next several years.
After college, Gina fell in love with group fitness, became certified to teach in 2011, and completed yoga teacher training in 2013. She also started researching how Ayurveda and holistic remedies could address her ongoing digestive issues, skin problems, and anxiety. She even carried a food sensitivities card with over 30 foods she was “not supposed to eat,” ranging from cranberries to cashews.
Between 2014-2015, both of her parents were hospitalized and ultimately diagnosed with different – but similarly mysterious and unknown – autoimmune conditions. Seeing her parents go through what they did was the tipping point for Gina. It finally dawned on her that we as a culture have a LOT to unlearn and answers were necessary.
In 2016, she completed her health coaching certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Gina specializes in helping busy women unravel the beliefs that no longer serve them, while establishing empowering habits for sustainable change. She also teaches at The Barre Code West Omaha.
