Gina is a serial entrepreneur with a track record of growing successful businesses in emerging industries.
Prior to Greenhouse Wellness, Gina was the Co-Founder of TheraPearl, a company that produced revolutionary hot and cold compresses filled with gel beads. TheraPearl provided a reusable, drug-free way of relieving pain and inflammation associated with muscle strains and sprains, swelling from surgery, spa treatments and allergies, and a host of other pain-producing conditions.
Because of her success with the company, Gina was named by Forbes Magazine in 2014 as one of the Women Who Built Outstanding Companies, and TheraPearl made the Inc. 500 list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in the US for two consecutive years.
After TheraPearl was purchased in 2014, Gina had the resources and desire to build another business, and saw the burgeoning cannabis industry as an opportunity to provide alternative treatment options for pain management. She applied for and was awarded the dispensary license for Maryland's twelfth district, thus leading to the formation of Greenhouse Wellness.
Prior to founding Therapearl and Greenhouse Wellness, Gina founded an information technology company, Private Digital Networks, which focuses on the meld of cloud computing with content delivery.
She also served as the Managing Partner of a Venture Fund, and was responsible for the qualification and selection of investment portfolio companies in a variety of technology areas. She joined the board of Directors of portfolio companies to provide management insight on strategic corporate and technology direction, as well as assistance in fund raising strategies.
She is a Licensed Professional Engineer (PE) with a Master’s degree in Engineering from George Washington University and a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from West Virginia University.
