Gennie is a GIS and Resilience Analyst with a passion for using geospatial data and technology to build sustainable solutions for communities. With a degree in sociology from the University of North Carolina Asheville, she has always been driven to understand and address the complex challenges communities face. Her commitment to making a positive impact was recognized when she won the Adelaide Daniels Key Community-Engaged Learning award as an undergraduate researcher, a testament to her dedication to community-based research and meaningful engagement.
Her GIS experience ranges from working on comprehensive plans to community plans for cities and counties across the country. This diverse background equips her with the tools to map vulnerabilities, assess risks, and design strategies that build resilience.
As part of the Resilience Services team at Fernleaf, she will develop valuable insights into climate impacts to guide decisions makers toward more informed decisions.
Gennie also volunteers as the Board Treasurer of a small non-profit in Asheville, North Carolina and serves on her town's Planning and Zoning Commission. When Gennie is not volunteering, she loves to watch TV dramas while hanging out with her big dog, Lola.
