That's when her parents moved from the Chicago housing projects, to become hard-working teenage homeowners as their oldest child and only daughter Gena set the tone for her younger brothers. As a well behaved, studious avid reader she was tested in elementary school as exceptional and entered the gifted program to excel throughout her education that continued into adulthood. Gena ran a successful home daycare/preschool for 23 years in two countries and four states but mostly in Joliet, IL.
