Jade Genga is our Laner of the Week!

M / L
Jade grew up in Rhode Island, and went to college in Mississippi. She now resides in New York where she's an actor professionally and works with Mustard Lane on the side. So far her favorite event was working the Rule Breakers event with Bustle. ML had over 100 Laners working Bustle's empowering event in Prospect Park. The Laners were stationed throughout the event representing all the booths onsite. Not only did the Laners get to work with amazing people and be a part of an outstanding event with amazing women but Jade got to see Janelle Monae perform! Fun Facts: Jade is a third generation professional performer. She feels lucky to have her favorite color also be her name, Jade green. She could live on bread and cheese and be perfectly happy.
