Gina is our resident goofy granny of girls. With a daughter and two grand daughters and stepping in to be mom and grandma of our operations department, Gina’s sparkling eyes and mischievous expressions make everyone wonder what she’s up to next. Born in the St. Louis area, she decided an adventure was at hand and she moved to Colorado in ’82. She returned to the Midwest (the blistering cold of Minnesota) for a few years, making ducks there quack for joy, when she realized Colorado is where she loves to be. With multitudes of hobbies from painting, sewing and making jewelry, we never know what tool she’ll get her hands on and create with next. Watch out Harbor Freight!
