She has lived in South Africa, Canada, the USA, several countries in Europe, and has travelled the world extensively. During her undergrad in Belgium, she worked at a community centre for expats and volunteered for their 24hr crisis line. After her Masters, Genevieve switched to the public service where she then worked in 3 levels of government over the next 10 years. She quit in 2019 to start the PhD program so that she could be a stronger advocate for her autistic children’s rights. Her research interests include barriers to education equity for autistic children and gaps in post-adoption policy.
