Genevieve is a community volunteer, girl scout leader, mom of 3, and the wife of a veteran. Growing up as the child of a single parent, she learned the value of hard work, perseverance, and the support that families need to succeed. After transitioning to civilian life after her husband's military career, their family experienced the same struggles as so many veterans face, finding well-paying jobs, health insurance, and struggling to pay for childcare while using the GI Bill for higher education and better career opportunity.
Genevieve and her husband finally chose South Windsor as the place where they would put down roots because they know what a strong community can mean to a working family. She believes that families require a fierce advocate in the state legislature to ensure that the system is working for them. For Genevieve, fighting for families in her community is deeply personal. Genevieve will fight for access to education, childcare, and healthcare, and to protect workers in an uncertain economy.
