About Gen

Before Vaco, Gen was a health and wellness consultant. She loves outdoor sports, cooking, traveling, watching movies, wine tasting, and reading. When you can’t find Gen in the office, you can be sure to find her on her Peloton (which I talk too much about).

What is the secret to a great interview?

Confidence is key. Not arrogance, there’s a fine line.

What is the most important piece of professional/career advice you have ever received?

Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

What is one cause or organization you are passionate about?

My grandpa, who was like a father to me, passed away from Parkinson’s disease in 2016. Parkinson’s disease is debilitating to those who suffer from it (Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali suffer(ed) from it). I support the Parkinson’s foundation every year in hopes that they can find a cure or treatments to minimize the severity of the disease.
