Geneva was raised in a military family and graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. After graduating Geneva interned for the ACLU, but it was not until she moved to San Diego and participated in the annual Citizens Academy facilitated by the District Attorney and County Sherriff that she felt her true calling to the legal field. So much so that she left her sales and marketing career of 10+ years and enrolled into the Paralegal Studies program at UCSD to become a Certified Paralegal. After becoming certified, Geneva worked as a Legal Compliance Representative, an Estate Planning Legal Assistant and a Certified Paralegal for Bankruptcy and Probate. She now specializes in Conservatorships, Guardianships, Probate, Trust Administration, and Estate Planning and is a Notary Public. In her spare time Geneva takes every opportunity to travel and snowboard, and is looking forward to attending law school to earn her J.D.
