Meet the Executive Director of Waltonwood Lakeside
Gina grew up on the West side of Michigan in a small town just outside of Kalamazoo. She attended Central Michigan University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, and Health Fitness in Preventative and Rehabilitative Programs. She has a passion for helping others and knew at a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in Healthcare. Prior to coming to Waltonwood in 2018, Gina was the Executive Director for an organization that developed and implemented supportive living programs for individuals that required medical care as a result of injuries sustained in automobile accidents. She decided to make the transition to senior living after having a personal experience with supporting a loved one diagnosed with Dementia. She became a Certified Assisted Living Director and Certified Dementia Practitioner in 2020.
Outside of Waltonwood, Gina enjoys boating on Lake St Clair, scuba diving, hiking and traveling the globe. She loves animals and has a cat and two rescue dogs at home, one of which came from Turkey with the help of the Great Lakes Golden Retriever Rescue.
