She sits numerous boards, including American University, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Town Hall Education Arts and Recreation Campus (THEARC), the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Washington Performing Arts Society, Fight for Children, Inc. and the DC Public Education Fund.
To quote the Elle article: “On any given day, Gina can be found meeting with a member of Congress, flying to the FedEx hub in Paris to give a tour of the operation, chairing a gala at the Kennedy Center, or going back to her old high school in southeast DC to “pay it forward.” Brava Gina!
