Genevieve is not just a mom, she's also a book nerd, nature lover, traveler, adventure seeker, activist, actress, and aspiring urban homesteader.

Gen left the wild west to study acting at NYU, then made a pit stop in Los Angeles before landing in Albuquerque after she was cast in my first TV show called Wildfire on ABC Family. A few more moves and TV shows later, she found a home in Austin, Texas where she now lives with her husband, three kids, 2 dogs, 14 chickens, and a hive of honeybees.

Her goal is to live curiously and she loves to share cool things that she discovers and the inspiring people she meets along the way. Sometimes it’s a dry shampoo that’s good on a hiking trip (like that time we hiked Machu Picchu), a good book that’s helpful for parenting, a pair of great shoes, or unexpected things that make life a little bit sweeter. No mom or person has it “all figured out,” so Gen hopes we can encourage and root for one another as we learn along the way.
