Gina found the love for the hospitality industry at a young age, while assisting her father at his restaurant(s) during Summer and Winter breaks from school. In 2016 Gina opened her first restaurant MAD Social. As her passion for the industry started post-graduation from DePaul University, she secured an event internship at Jasculca Terman & Associates, a public affairs firm in Chicago. Gina’s internship provided her with invaluable experiences and opportunities, which led her to begin a career in event freelancing.
One of her first events was with advance support for then Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Gina continued her event freelancing with JT, working closely with NATO Chicago Host Committee and the NATO joint spouse Chicago program. Gina has also assisted in Chicago advance airport logistics for President Obama, and the First Lady. Other accomplishments include executing events for the non-profit organization CURE, Citizen’s United for Research in Epilepsy, founded by Susan Axelrod.
