Gina first fell in love with music by going to a ballet! She then started piano, later added other instruments and then fell in love with the voice after seeing musical theater at Interlochen. She knew deep inside that she wanted to be a musician.
“Each person here on earth matters. Your voice matters because you matter.”
“You get to tell stories that matter and stories that make a positive impact.” (Through singing)

Gina gives two books that can be helpful and inspirational to read for singers:
The Singing Athlete by Andrew Byrne
The Inner Voice by Renee Fleming
“Anything that’s a practice is something that you do regularly, consistently and that you do it in a spirit of growth—that you are always looking to go deeper and discover new things.”
“Practicing requires us to take an honest look at ourselves and that can be scary.”
