Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, Gina from Kansas City, MO This purpose-filled pastor loves to dress up. Why? To ‘represent her queeness’ and positivity. Yasss Queen! Influenced greatly by the biblical value system, Gina believes in leading through genuine connections. The fruit of that belief can be seen in the way she facilitates and coaches trauma healing groups and women’s empowerment groups too. Her best advice for women? “Be your own She-ro first. You must take good care of yourself in order to be effective in assisting others.” Thanks for inspiring us, Gina!

Yum. Thanks for being authentic and inspiring us in the process, Simone!
