Gina Cuellar also known as "Jez" is an entrepreneur, mother and volunteer worker. She helps run her family business of 30 years at L.A. Designs in Vernon, CA where Jez and Stela Clothing Company is located at. A side dog training business called Blessed Pawz and is an active volunteer advisor on Set a Fire, an outreach organization for the young adults.
Gina went through PTSD and concurred the struggles of depression, detachment, anxiety, numbness, fear, anger, guilt and shame, after she was raped at age 17. Her life was turned upside down, leaving her feeling absent and not being able to understand all the reasons of “why me?”. Not knowing how to move forward and living with PTSD for many years, she reached out and surrendered herself to the Lord. Through her new journey with the Lord, she learned how to become an overcomer. She found freedom in forgiveness, obtaining her heart desires in her blessings and how a small step of obedience can make a big difference. Now she looks forward to the blessings of today and tomorrow, as she continues to grow and flourish by keeping her sight set on the Lord and sharing her story, from ashes to beauty.
Blanca "Stela" is Gina's daughter and is the co-owner of Jez and Stela. She started helping at the age of 11 and helps run the shop from day to day. She is a lighthouse to people who meet her, while sharing the gospel to them. She is truly an inspiration herself.
She has learned to forgive, walk in love, to be more and want more. Stela speaks on this, knowing her heavenly father and is a representation of how we should walk and represent our heavenly father. She is a beautiful blessing not just to her family but to everyone around her.
Her passions are in art, film, photography and cooking. She aspires to open her own restaurant as she gets older and is an outstanding student. Her journey with the lord is flourishing beautifully and we are excited to see what he has in store for her.
Jez and Stela Clothing is a representation of their journey; from their life lessons to their joy and their silly moment sayings. To learn more about them please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
