Gina has worked with Shakti for 14 years. Having been personally mentored and trained by Shakti, Gina co-leads workshops, facilitates groups and has contributed to Shakti’s best selling products. Gina has been trained and certified in a number of counseling fields. She brings a deep level of experience, wisdom and joy to each workshop she co-leads with Shakti.

Here is a snapshot of Gina: Gina is a “Soccer Mom”. She is a single mom raising three inspired children, a survivor of Domestic Violence, a sober alcoholic for over twenty years, a mentor, a friend, an advocate, a seeker. Her journey has brought her to a place of knowing that life holds something extraordinary for each of us. Her faith and hope has brought insight and inspiration to many. Her passion is to support people in recognizing their true potential for joy, freedom and empowerment.

Gina’s childhood was shaped by the tragic loss of her father at a young age, the brokenness and contradictions of those around her, by violence, and by abuse. Losing herself in rebellion at an early age, she rejected all tradition and authority, ultimately finding grace and recovery through surrendering to a “power greater than herself” who restored her to sanity...most of the time.

Working with Shakti has been a powerful and transformative process for Gina. She feels it is an honor to work alongside Shakti, and is grateful for the mentoring she has received from Shakti. Today they enjoy a rich partnership bringing Shakti’s work to the world.

In addition to her passion for working with others, her life changing work with Shakti, and loving on her three children, Gina writes a fun and thought provoking blog soccermomspirituality.com. In her blog, Gina helps us see that wherever we are on our own spiritual path, we are not alone. She hopes you enjoy her blog and will find encouragement, if not “enlightenment” for your journey.
