About Gina
Hi! I came up in magazines (formerly the Travel Editor at Food and Wine, and before that, worked in editorial departments at Rachael Ray Every Day, O: the Oprah Magazine, and George Magazine. Four years ago I transitioned into content marketing and project work, starting my business and taking on other projects as well. (I wrote the stylish cookbook ¡Buenos Nachos!) Last year I embarked on a side gig called Thank You Year, which I documented on Insta (@thankyouyear), and which got a bit of press. I live in Brooklyn with my husband and two kids, Henry, 6, and Charlie, 2.5.

Remember that "the hustle" is a dance--have fun with it.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

After writing 365 thank you notes in 2018, I can teach this community how to write thank you notes to their career (and life) mentors.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Funding & Finance

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

More clients on monthly retainer.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I am looking for the online equivalent of what I've found at The Wing—a group of supportive and inspiring women. I often use contractors in my work (writers, illustrators, social media managers, SEO pros), and this seems like a great place to find those. If I find a few clients here as well, all the better.
