She started her career by working her way up Chicago’s public relations agency world. She gained broad experience, serving as a national spokesperson for the "got milk?" campaign at Weber Shandwick before pursuing an opportunity with a startup PR agency. She garnered experience in public relations, content marketing, social media and brand messaging.
In 2007, she made the leap to entrepreneur – first with Catalyst Communications, next with GK Public Relations, and finally with Red Compass Communications – and she has been enjoying the agency founder role ever since.
Whether it’s putting in extra hours to spur a client towards success or hiking 1,400 miles solo on the Appalachian Trail, Gina has the fortitude to get to the finish line. She has a passion towards encouraging positive change in the world, and is proud to have put her professional skills and creativity towards ending homelessness, healthcare education, concussion awareness and empowering young women. Her client relationships have yielded both positive business metrics and enduring friendships.
