Hi, I’m Gina.

I’m an award-winning journalist and author writing about the sibling experience, family, complicated grief, and the healing power of nature. I like to examine the intersections of things: Disability and loss. Joy and pain. Love and estrangement. Nature and humanity. The places and people we call home.

My first book, FORCES OF NATURE: A Memoir of Family, Loss, and Finding Home, is coming in May 2024. And I’m working on an essay collection that explores nature and nurturing… or all the ways the natural world can care for us as humans and teach us about ourselves.

I promise I’ll only reach out when I have something important to share.
