She also became a founding partner of the Fair Housing Action Network. In 2014 Gina and several friends created a nonprofit called Community Housing Action Partnership which brought community members together to develop safe, affordable housing that is attainable to all members of our community.
Regina was a longtime dedicated fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates and had regularly traveled to Bradenton, FL to watch Spring Training.
