Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

March 28, 2017

Ms. Gina Berry

ABWA National Secretary/Treasurer, 2015-2016

Gina is delighted to serve ABWA and its members.  Her leadership journey has included serving on the National Board of Directors as National Secretary Treasurer, 2015 -2016, and as District I Vice President, 2014-2015.  In addition, Gina served 2 years as a Trustee of the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund, one of the country's most highly respected grant and scholarship funds for women. Proud member of ABWA and the Lakeland Downtown Chapter since 2007, Gina's leadership journey also included President of the Lakeland Downtown Chapter, 2011-2012, Chapter Woman of the Year and Top Ten Candidate in 2013.

An entrepreneur at heart, Gina formed Berry Good Enterprises, Inc. in 2013 as a holding company for her various business enterprises both current and developing!  After selling her costume shop business of 10 years in 2015, Gina learned a new skill set as Partner and Certified Clinical Thermographer, Central Florida Medical Thermography (Imaging, Training, and Business Development).   Medical infrared imaging is the field of thermography that derives diagnostic indications from infrared images of the human body. “Thermography devices have been cleared by the FDA for use as an adjunct, or additional, tool for detecting breast cancer." As a fun side business, Gina is a partner with Direct Cellars...Berry Good Wine. Raise your glass! Celebrating you!  Cheers!
