In this episode,

AJ Locashio will interview Genie V so you can get to know all about her and trust us, you want to know Genie! She is fascinating. There is a reason she is hosting this podcast and we will find out what that is and a whole lot more during this interview.


Here’s a little taste from her interview on the WorkEND podcast in early October where she was a panelist.

Salena: Is there a timeline on exploration? How do you motivate neurodivergent people to move forward in that process?
Genie: “you know I’m just going to toss this out…for 49 years I thought I was a man…”

This sense of humor is just one of many reasons why Genie V is the perfect host for ND & N-O!

Come along for the ride and get to know Genie V and what’s ahead in 2024 for ND & N-O!
