Hi, I'm Genevieve.
I’m a designer and civic entrepreneur. I use my skills to push for equitable social progress and more people-centered government programs.I've helped transform critical NYC services, made real the experiences of New Yorkers to those in leadership and laid the groundwork for tech to help our most vulnerable neighbors. I've coached civil servants to add design to their toolboxes and helped build teams dedicated to putting their skills into service.
Now, I'm working with the talented team over at Nava PBC to make a stronger and more equitable social safety net for the American people.I feel deeply indebted to the folks who have fought to make our communities more just, dignified places to live. I'll be successful if my work honors theirs.
