“Genevieve played an integral part in creating a communication plan and a strategic plan for the Diabetic Youth Foundation [now Diabetes Youth Families organization] to guide the agency over many years. She was part of the team that helped DYF to grow the number of children and families served by our programs by over 100%. She is a great team player who put her knowledge and passion behind every project. In addition, she helped launch a new special event that grew to raise almost $80,000 each year for our services. Finally, she has great grant writing skills that enabled DYF to receive a grant to hire a social worker for every camp session. Simply put, she would be a great asset to any agency.”

“As Board President of the Valley Children’s Museum, Genevieve was a dedicated, hard-working leader with a true passion for hands-on, play-based learning. At the same time, she was detail-oriented and an excellent writer. Genevieve moved the board of directors forward by developing organizational programs and hiring its first staff members. Her work ethic and development brought the museum closer to fruition.
