Gina loves working out daily, enjoying the dedication and commitment to having a strong mind, healthy body, and balanced lifestyle. Her ability to effectively manage her time and multiple priorities attribute to her strong work ethic and exceptional project management and organizational skills. Gina continues to rely on her proven ability to evaluate existing operations, identify inefficiencies and redundancies, and innovate process improvements across the HR discipline in the various roles held. Like working out, having a defined goal established is critical when supporting the needs of our member companies and, more importantly, in providing them with top-notch service and products on time.


Gina’s passion is to help organizations mitigate risk by implementing new workplace policies, processes, and best practices for the past 10 years. Applying her extensive HR generalist and government compliance experience, she’s effectively led and partnered with senior leadership on enterprise-wide process improvement initiatives and training programs for multiple organizations. Additionally, with the ever-changing regulatory landscape, Gina keeps abreast of legal trends and government regulations, evidenced by her quantifiable record of success in timely Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs audit closures and delivering cost-effective, compliant solutions across a wide array of industries within the private sector.

  • Outlined and executed the company’s first compliance refresher training program to support its affirmative action plan goals and diversity commitments
  • Successfully led a project team on implementing a centralized online hourly recruitment model across 90 retail locations within a 4-month period, which resulted in overall cost savings, reduction in administration time, improvement in employee retention, and ultimately, passing government audits
