Gina has led initiatives to reach out to the Hispanic market for numerous organizations in the U.S. such as the High Museum of Art, the Center for the Civil and Human Rights, the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State University, Grand Velas Resorts from Mexico, the Mexican State of Yucatan Tourism Board, the Mexico Tourism Board, Delta Dental Insurance, and the Atlanta United soccer club, among others.

Originally from Mexico City, Gina came to the United States in 1998 as a Miami-based producer and presenter for the BBC.
She moved to Atlanta in 2002 and joined CNN in 2003 as a producer for a variety of news, finance and entertainment shows. She later worked as News Editor for Mundo Hispanico and as Director of Public Relations for the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, before leaving to form her own firm.
Her expertise in media relations comes from her long experience as a journalist and the many relationships she’s developed over the years.
