Gina is the Executive Director of a hospice company in Tyler, Texas. Her staff says, “While the weight of her job is very heavy, you never see it on her face. She manages to keep a smile on her face and warm the heart of her employees daily. The amazing support she provides to her staff allows all of us to provide amazing end-of-life care to our patients and support to family members.”

Gina’s dedication to her team goes beyond her day-to-day duties. “This year during the pandemic when we could not celebrate nurse’s week as a group, she made individualized family game night bags (including snacks and games that each of our children would love according to their personalities) and hand-delivered them to each of our homes,” her staff says. When the in-person annual Christmas party was thwarted by the pandemic in 2020, she hosted a drive-thru Christmas party to sprinkle joy on her employees who worked from home and hadn’t gathered in nine months. Her team says, “Giving her the opportunity to be recognized would be a way for us to show her how amazing she is as a leader and as a friend.” ⁠

Gina shares her mantra, “Live every day to the fullest.”

Thank you, Gina, for your dedication to positively impacting others while fully embracing the opportunities that come with every sunrise and sunset.
