Hard work, determination, and grit are literally in Genevieve’s DNA. Her grandmother, Calvert Collins, was a trailblazer; the first woman elected to the Dallas City Council. Genevieve has built upon that legacy of service with her own good work.
A graduate of SMU’s Cox School of Business and renowned local businesswoman, Genevieve was named one of 2018’s local 20 Under 40 for her remarkable work helping to turn around low-performing school districts and change students’ lives.
The Head of Corporate Strategy at Istation, a leading education technology firm that helps students and teachers reach their academic goals using personalized learning to pinpoint every student’s exact reading and math ability, Genevieve has worked with school districts large and small across the country to bring a world-class education to all students regardless of where they live. As a public education advocate, Genevieve’s success even brought her to Washington DC, where she proposed landmark education reforms directly to Vice President Pence.
Genevieve is one of the most driven, competitive people you will ever meet. She founded the rowing team at her high school and, at the University of Tennessee, she crushed the Ivy League teams in the NCAA Championships, placing 5th in the nation – even with two dislocated ribs.
Above all, Genevieve is a strong Republican with a servant’s heart for others and is grounded by her strong Christian faith. Forever an optimist, she believes you show your love for others by putting their needs and security above your own. That’s why we can trust Genevieve to take on the tough issues in Washington and never run away from a fight.
