Gena got a scholarship in theatrics for Miming. Yes, that is correct... white gloves, white face... performing mime! But she ended up going to Barean University where she earned her Minister's license. After working as a licensed Pastor for over 12 years and running a nonprofit organization specializing in helping teens in Junior and Senior high, she decided to change courses. In 2011, she moved to Colorado with her family where she landed a job at Banfield working in a completely new field. She loved working with pet parents and enjoyed being a part of their journey. She loves working at a place that allows her to be free, creative, and accepts her quirkiness. In her free time, Gena likes to build club houses with her kids and go hiking in the hills.
