About Genesis

Genesis’s experience working for foreign governments, the California Legislature, and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on climate and energy issues enables her to help clients achieve their policy and regulatory objectives successfully.

She led initiatives to advance building decarbonization in California, which involved coordinating closely with the California Legislature and key agencies including the California Energy Commission (CEC), California Air Resources Board (CARB), and the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development. She also worked on implementing CPUC’s efforts to meet California’s grid reliability and meet the state’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.

Genesis’s experience in the energy sector also includes cap-and-trade legislation, energy efficiency, demand response, behind-the-meter energy storage, solar PV, low-income programs, transportation electrification, and hydrogen.

Through her work, Genesis has developed long-lasting relationships with key state agencies and decision-makers that play a critical role in energy and environmental policy.
