Administrative Coordinator

Genna serves as the Administrative Coordinator at 501 Commons, where she provides general programmatic support, event management, and assistance to the Technology Services team.

Originally from the Snoqualmie Valley, Genna moved to California to earn a B.S. in Environmental Science from Santa Clara University. There, she helped lead a student outdoors club and began exploring ways to foster social justice in local communities.

Through her interest in community growth, Genna has volunteered for various nonprofits in Washington, Oregon, and California. She has also spent a summer in Kolkata, India working with an environmental nonprofit that serves students in West Bengal. Her most recent role was an AmeriCorps position in Portland, OR as the Education/Shelter Liaison at New Avenues for Youth. In this role, she was able to help youth experiencing homelessness access resources and obtain a GED.

After taking a hiatus from the Seattle area, Genna is excited to be back home and hike as many trails as possible!
