Like all children of well-meaning parents, Gina was raised under the impression she could be anything she wanted to be when she grew up. Her choice to become a firefighter lit the spark, fueled by discrimination and her own determination, which created a backdraft in its wake. This is the story of one woman’s journey of braving the flames, to ultimately rising from the ashes, finding her own empowerment in a man’s world. Join her on her journey as she not only changes a system but also shares her process of becoming a firegal, a force that is inextinguishable!
