Name: Gina Underwood
What is your professional field of wellness?
I am a Life Coach and Consultant.
How did you get into this line of work?
Since 8th grade, when I read books about individuals working with psychotherapists, I have been interested to collaborate with people to create the most fulfilling lives available to them.
After 18 years of training and experience, I recently started my new coaching business: iThrive Daily, as I believe people sometimes find coaching to be more accessible than psychotherapy. I wanted to start a business with a positive growth focus that could be meaningful to anyone, especially including someone going through a life transition or a rough patch. And the collaboration could last for whatever timeframe is needed: a one-time consultation, short-term collaboration, or an ongoing personal growth process.
How does your work contribute to the wellness of our community?
While I am available to work with individuals in my coaching practice, I am also available to work with groups, including in the workplace, to identify ways to build resilience and wellness as well as effectively navigate life's inevitable challenges.
Why do you love Rainbow Blossom?
I love that Rainbow Blossom is a business with heart. I think part of that is related to being family-owned from the beginning. From the way Rainbow Blossom has evolved over the years (such as the development of the Wellness Center) to outstanding customer service to community events, Rainbow Blossom emphasizes that they really care about the people in our community...to me, that shows a lot of heart.
