Lucky enough to be born in the beautiful Bahamas with two beaches for playgrounds meant that the joy of island life was imprinted at an early age. Early education, the main, took place in The Bahamas and, thereafter, at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica and in Barbados. This was followed soon after by marriage, which meant life divided between Nassau, London and Gstaad.
In 2015, Genie returned to live full time in The Bahamas with her dogs, Honey and May. She became licensed with the Bahamas Real Estate Association in 2016. Genie is currently Co-Chairman of the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF), and Creative Director of Jeannie McQueeny International.
