Ms. de Generes was born on March 26, 1959 in Seattle Washington. Her father's career in the Air Force led the family to a life of travel which included an assignment in Germany as well as many locations throughout the US. She recently relocated to Shreveport to spend time with family.
Gigi graduated from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Business. She had a varied career that began in retail before settling into medical equipment sales.

She was also a volunteer with Charleston's Spoleto Arts Festival, the American Heart Association, and the Make a Wish Foundation. In her free time Gigi enjoyed classical music, swimming, and taking long walks. She was proud to have participated in a Cooper River Bridge Walk/Run which benefitted various charities and gave her a chance to enjoy the city she loved.
