Dr Genevra Walters is a true leader! She doesn’t lead by saying “look at me!” She’s working quietly behind the scenes. She not looking for headlines, she’s truly changing lives in our community.

Thanks for being a role model to our community. It’s extremely difficult to lead in any situation but especially as an African American women. But you continue to do so confidently while embracing not only changes that we all are dealing with, but you embrace others ideas. Your ability to lead as well as the understanding of when to follow is probably your most talented gift as many leaders struggle with this but you are comfortable and confident with who you are. I can definitely go on about your impact but most importantly thanks for your passion to serve the community and offer on a daily basis the best version of yourself!!
