What GENaustin is Thankful For This Thanksgiving


We wanted to share just a few of the many things we at GENaustin have to be thankful for this year:

Rachel, clubGEN Program Manager:

    • The opportunity to work with such an amazing group of committed, loyal, strong, passionate, hard-working, supportive, and hilarious women!

    • Harley, the Boxer/Pit mix who serendipitously found her way into my home and into my heart this fall.

  • Grams, my 91 year old grandma who has been kicking breast cancer’s butt for over 10 years!

Amanda Villareal, Outreach Specialist

    • GENaustin’s prioritization of being inclusive and to provide calculated support to girls and parents from ALL backgrounds (particularly, Spanish-dominant families!)

    • The resources we have for our clubGEN girls.

  • Staff members’ obvious commitment to our mission in every action.

Celeste King, clubGEN Campus Coordinator

  • I’m thankful for all the amazingly funny, smart and sassy girls I get to have in clubGEN all week. Also, I’m thankful for my dog and all the amazing meals I ate this year.

Maria Geary, Marketing Specialist

    • The wonderful women of GENaustin, along with all the volunteers and supporters who invaluably contribute to our mission of encouraging and empowering girls.

    • Everyone who donated to our We Are Girls scholarship drive.

Ani Mirasol, 180 Program Manager

    • I’m thankful for our amazing staff and volunteers who make working at GENaustin such a delight.

  • I’m also thankful for my loving partner, cuddly, stinky, and super weird dog, and gluten free bakeries.


Hope everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving this year!
