Health Policy Intern
Genevieve appreciates the beauty and grit of humanity, which draws her to serve marginalized populations. She double majored in Psychology and Neuroscience, earning her BS at Regis University where social justice is infused in the curriculum. She then pursued a year of service by joining Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in Juneau Alaska where she worked with children and families in the foster care system, as well as adults who suffer from early onset Dementia. After her year of service, she became a Clinical Case Manager at the Mental Health Center of Denver and worked with adults who suffer from Severe and Persistent Mental Illness for over four and a half years. Her passion for hearing, celebrating, and advocating for silenced people’s stories propelled her towards pursuing a Master of Social Work at MSU Denver. Genevieve is excited to use her micro level experience to create macro level change and believes that quality, affordable, and accessible healthcare should be available to everyone. Although she grew up in Colorado, she does not ski or snowboard! She loves live music, soaking up sunshine without getting too sun burnt, dog sitting, and playing competitive sports and games.
