Genevieve Skinner Advocacy Director
Genevieve is an undergraduate student in Washington D.C. at American University. She is majoring in the interdisciplinary studies of Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics and Government in the School of Public Affairs. She is also studying dance, continuing a lifelong commitment to the art.
Originally from Wake Forest, NC, Genevieve has been a part of the BDFNC community for as long as she can remember, coming to walks and the annual conference with her mom. She first got involved with BDFNC due to her mother’s Factor I deficiency. Since then, she has worked on issues that affect the bleeding disorders community at the national level while interning with the policy division of the National Hemophilia Foundation. She has also interned for the Bleeding Disorders Foundation of NC for two summers, and volunteered for many years before that, even attending her first Advocacy Days when she was 15. Genevieve enjoys the legislative process and is proud to be a part of it on behalf of BDFNC.
