Gina’s scholarly interests focus on leadership and social and economic justice issues, particularly as they impact women. She recently began research on Christian understandings of radical hospitality. In addition, she is a Senior Wicklander Fellow at the Institute for Business and Professional Ethics DePaul University which not only furthers the message that business and professional ethics are important but also works to catalyze the for-profit sector to incorporate Vincentian values of charity and poverty alleviation through active engagement in the community, both locally and globally.


Gina currently serves as the Transitional Executive Director for the Society of Christian Ethics and is an active member of the Catholic Theological Society of America. Prior to her doctoral studies Gina worked in the fields of market research and economic research and forecasting. She also was on the editorial staff of The Tablet, based in London, England.
