Today is Veteran’s Day, the day we recognize and honor the brave people who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Veterans represent an essential part of the Shiftgig community and we appreciate all that they do for us.

She is a 20-year Air Force veteran and an inspiration to us here at Shiftgig.
Born and raised in Memphis, Genetta Lillian has established herself as a professional model and brand ambassador. She considers herself creative and never had a problem being in front of people growing up.
