Georgia was born in Rochester, New York in 1950. At the age of twelve she began her national modeling career. At seventeen, she became the "Kodak Girl," immortalized with her life-size image displayed in more than 80,000 retail stores throughout the world.
Following a marriage that produced a daughter and ended in failure, Georgia met and married Joe Lamandola, a seemingly successful businessman. However, Joe wasn’t what he appeared to be. In reality, he was an abuser with ties to organized crime.
Georgia is also the author of the best-selling book, The Company She Keeps. It tells the story of her life as a victim and how she overcame it. The Company She Keeps has been recognized by domestic violence prevention and recovery groups, for the inspiration and motivation it provides abused women who are looking to reclaim and rebuild their lives. She has appeared on the TV show I Married A Mobster.
