After graduating from Merrillville High School, Genta ventured on to Indiana University to receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.   She worked at Wishard hospital in the burn unit and Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago with spinal cord patients, it was a challenging and rewarding career.

At that time a friend worked for a company called UCC and got to travel across the United States working with franchisees in the home remodeling. The idea and adventure of travel caught Genta’s heart and she felt that the could return to nursing after seeing the country for a while.

However, almost  30 years later she is still working with clients daily helping to turn people’s dreams into reality.  She would state that both of her career options are rewarding, but it is more fun watching the expressions of clients when they see their finish projects and rejoice in the money that they have saved through Indy Home Design Center.

Genta now lives in Carmel with her husband, Jack, and daughter Miah. She has owned and or operated a design business for over 30 years.

She has an additional passion for (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) as they were challenged when their daughter at the age of nine was diagnosed with Type 1 juvenile diabetes. Miah is doing well as she adventures into middle school and plays travel softball.
