Gina is a Tennessee-licensed, ABC-certified orthotist for Hanger Clinic in Nashville. She provides general orthotic care with a focus on pediatric patients.
Gina specializes in pediatric lower limb orthotics, scoliosis treatment, pectus carinatum treatment, cranial remolding orthoses, and functional electrical stimulation devices. During her orthotic residency at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, she spent the majority of her time working with pediatric patients with a variety of diagnoses such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, club foot, and CMT.
She truly loves helping people and O&P care makes that possible. When she reviews a mid-treatment scan report with a cranial patient’s family to show them the progress made, or she watches a child walk with their AFOs for the first time and sees how it improves their gait, there is an immense sense of satisfaction and reward. The relationships developed with her patients and their families are the icing on the cake! Especially with her pediatric patients, she works hard to make sure that their families know she’s there for them and happy to answer questions. Whether it’s day 1 of treatment or day 101 of treatment, she wants her patients to know that they’re in this together!
Outside of the clinic, Gina loves spending time with her family, friends and, of course, her Shetland Sheepdog, Remmy. She enjoys playing the piano, playing volleyball, and when possible, spending time on and in the water. She moved to Nashville in the summer of 2019 and has enjoyed exploring this amazing city.
