Let us introduce ourselves

We are a consulting firm that is singularly focused on improving child health and well-being.

Genesis Health Consulting was founded on four core beliefs that guide our counsel to clients. 


We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to thrive. 


We believe that a child's health is more than just the absence of disease or injury, but is the sum of their physical, psychological, social and behavioral well-being.


We believe in the power of design – of systems, policies, communities – and the ability for smart design to meaningfully drive outcomes.


We believe that good outcomes are good business.

Our Approach

Why We're Different:

We develop and implement health solutions that are designed specifically for kids and families

We explore root causes of circumstances impacting children and families and develop evidence-informed, multifaceted solutions that build upon the natural strengths and assets of children, families and communities.


We intentionally bring an equity lens to our work and hold ourselves accountable as students, allies, and leaders of change. 


We have an abiding commitment to our community. We know we cannot achieve our goal of enabling every child to thrive without supporting the development of healthy communities.


We effectively work across sectors by tapping into our combined 35+ years of experience in health system leadership, direct health care delivery, health policy, community engagement, public health, and health care financing.

How We Work: 

Courage – Creating something new takes courage. We value taking smart risks, choosing what might be possible over what is predictable, and learning as we go.

Integrity – Our integrity is paramount. We are honest brokers of change; forthright and trustworthy on what we will deliver.

Collaboration – We are on this journey with you. Different perspectives bring richer conversation, more effective design and stronger outcomes for our clients and the families they serve.

Joy – This is our life’s work. We take great joy from the opportunity to work with the nation’s most innovative thinkers on behalf of kids.

Health – We practice what we preach. We continue to challenge ourselves to make Genesis Health Consulting a business that succeeds because we invest in the whole health of our employees and their families.
