Gina has enjoyed 40 years of nursing practice, which she says, “was a calling from the age of 5”. She has spent the last 18 years primarily devoted to diabetes education both in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Along with her diabetes background, she has worked in acute care, long term care, rural health, and home health settings.
