Desmond Center for Community Engagement & Wellness
Genesis Ramos grew up in the City of Newburgh and attended SUNY Orange, SUNY New Paltz, and Marist College. As the Executive Director of the Desmond Center for Community Engagement & Wellness at Mount Saint Mary College, Genesis provides oversight for the development of a new community-facing center on campus serving the surrounding community with basic health care, health education and wellness services and programming. She is also an Orange County Legislator. “My upbringing with Honduran immigrant parents and growing up poor in the City of Newburgh made me aware, from a young age, of the disparities that exist,” Genesis said. “These factors inspired my education and drove my career in the public sector, being in roles of service.”
