Gen McNamee is a long time resident of the Comox Valley raising a busy family with her even busier husband Steve. Giving back to your community is a strong family value in the McNamee household. Gen and Steve believe in leading by example for their children. Gen’s chosen career is in the Insurance Industry and after 25+ years, as an insurance agent/agency manager, Gen is now the Commercial Lines Sales Manager for Vancouver Island InsuranceCentres. When Gen is not working, she can be found supporting her children in their numerous activities, which almost always includes some form of volunteering. It can be as little as helping out during hockey games or tournaments, fundraising to support an Improv team getting to the National Championships in Ottawa or as big as hosting the BC Provincial Baseball championships (twice in the last 4 years). Seeing firsthand the difference that the CV Community Foundation makes in our community is what drives Gen to be on the board.
