Geena has been through more than most in her young life, having had two teenage brothers killed due to gang violence, which is why she has such a strong passion for the inner city youth of her community. She spends her free time visiting local middle schools and high schools inspiring them to become more than what is expected of them.
Geena was the first in her family to graduate from a four-year university and was also the founding president of the first-ever Latina based sorority Sigma Lambda Gamma at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where she also received a softball scholarship. She has been a member of the National Latina Business Women’s Association, served as an honorary board member for the MANA organization San Diego Chapter and has participated in numerous local charities. She truly loves life and appreciates everything that she has been blessed with.
