Gina is a freelance graphic designer for Sample Design, trained culinary professional, and cyclist. She changed her dietary lifestyle back in 2010 after a 21-day cleanse and detox program. The result was increased energy, improved training and race times, and the ability to recover quickly. In 2014, Gina received a Culinary Arts certificate at San Diego Continuing Education and founded The Vegan Lab. Her goal is to help others transform their health through clean, plant-powered eating by offering private cooking classes, and small event catering. As a designer and webmaster, Gina is excited to combine her graphic design skills and plant-based culinary knowledge for PlantDiego.
