Genevieve’s love for the screen industry was sparked by watching her uncle’s career as an Art Director. Before joining the Envy team, Gen attended South Seas Film and Television school where she specialised in production management with a keen interest in post production.
Her training in production management equipped her with the organisational skills that are needed in a multi-studio environment such as Envy. Not to mention her honours degree in Media and Comms from the UoA that gives her the technical edge.
When not working, Gen loves hosting dinner parties and share a cheeky glass of wine or two with her friends.
