Gina has been in Flagstaff since 2008 when she obtained her Masters Degree in Applied Environmental Communication.

Her educational focus is on human’s relationship with the natural world, and she finds herself often pondering all the ways in which we can help this place we call home.

She has a deep love and appreciation for the Colorado Plateau landscape and a perpetual curiosity about all the plants that grow in such a temperamental environment. When she is not working with the plants in the greenhouses she can be found out in the wild with her dog, Ruca.
