Portrait of Gena

Gina was originally from Akron, Ohio, USA. She came to California to experience something new. Then she stayed because, “What honestly kept me here, was the weather. I don’t miss that snow and the brutal winters.”

Gina was a cardiovascular technician who worked in the Intensive Care Unit at Palmdale Regional Medical Center and helped with critical care patients. She monitored: oxygen levels in  blood,  blood pressures, significant rhythm changes, arterial lines, and checked EKG readings to make sure nothing was wrong.

Gina worked with cardiologists and had been in this career for 20-plus years. She was trained in the first hospital she entered, in 1981, Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood, California. They had a certification course, “and that’s what set me on my path.”

She wanted to say to the world that, “God is good, good all the time, all the time, and God is good.”
