A recipient of many awards and recognition for her work in Domestic Violence (DV), Gena has amassed many titles throughout her years of service to Davidson County survivors: tenacious advocate, effective presenter and gifted grant writer. A co-founder of the Nashville Coalition Against Domestic Violence in Nashville, Gena was one of the first volunteer court advocates in Nashville’s courtrooms (over 25 years ago.) She went on to pioneer several other DV programs in collaboration with the Metro Police Department and Judicial System, including the establishment of Morning Star Sanctuary’s (MSS) court advocacy program, the MSS satellite office for assistance with Orders of Protection, as well as the organization’s HOPE Children’s Counseling and Mentoring programs. For over ten years, Gena facilitated support groups for survivors of domestic violence, even as she served on numerous boards and committees throughout the county in the fight to end DV. In 2003, former Mayor Bill Purcell appointed Gena to serve on the newly formed Death Review team. Today, Gena continues to be an integral force in all aspects of procedural planning and maintenance for Morning Star Sanctuary’s domestic violence programs.
