Gen grew up on the Wyoming prairie, helping neighbors with their farming and ranching as well as working with her Spanish Mustangs. In 1989 her family opened a restaurant in a small town in Montana. She remained active in the agricultural community, helping neighbors brand and herd their cattle. After high school, she studied Biology at MSU-Bozeman where she met her husband of 19 years, Bill Schneider.
While in Bozeman, she started her career as a veterinary assistant and continued down that path during her time in Wisconsin. When she moved to Colorado she attended the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology, so that she could become a certified veterinary technician and work for the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. After the birth of her twins, she realized that the only way to create a better future was to become involved in the present.
She ran for, and won, a seat on the Dacono City Council in 2012. During this time, she was active with the Carbon Valley Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Women in Government, and the Colorado Municipal League. When her term expired, she ran a successful campaign to pass a lodging tax in Dacono and currently sits on the Dacono Planning Commission and the Police Advisory Committee. In 2018, she graduated summa cum laude from CU-Boulder, obtaining her bachelors degree in the field of Political Science. This combination of rural spirit, academic success, real world experience, and commitment to public service make her an amazing candidate for House District 63.
Our district needs someone who represents all the people, not just those of one party. Gen's experience as a city council member would serve her well in this position, and she would be very proud to work for all the citizens in House District 63.
Gen's goals as your Representative would be improving the educational system, prioritizing our aging infrastructure, managing the oil and gas industry, revising TABOR, and promoting the health and safety for everyone who lives, works, and plays in Colorado.
We can't win this race without your help. Canvassing, word-of-mouth, and donating are all ways of helping us achieve our goals together.
