Genna is a multi-faceted professional, with small-business roots and a background in both hard science and literature. Inspired by the collaborative accomplishment of the Human Genome Project and her mother’s struggle with Parkinson’s Disease and the US health care system, Genna has been fascinated with the potential of biotechnology and genetic research in treating and preventing illness, and the potential for regulatory mechanisms to increase patient access to cutting-edge health care technology.

After completing her undergraduate degrees, Genna excelled as the Quality Assurance/Quality Control Laboratory Technician for a biomedia processing facility in Lenexa, Kansas, and she spent a year in Yoshino Village, Tokushima, Japan, teaching English to junior high school students. In law school, Genna took all courses related to Health Law and Intellectual Property, and competed in the relevant moot court events. Genna interned for the Washington State Attorney General’s Office Torts Division. She held two judicial clerkships: for the Honorable Annette S. Plese of the Spokane County Superior Court in Spokane, Washington; and for the Honorable William R. Fairchild of the Douglas County District Court in Lawrence, Kansas.

Wishing to return to the hospitality and cultural richness of the Midwest, Genna chose the Chicago-land area to establish her legal career. She discovered that her love of small business blended with the area's individuality, and a shared pride for supporting local businesses. She also discovered a need for affordable intellectual property and commercial legal services, specifically tailored to small business owners and individuals. On January 1st, 2013, Hibbs Law, LLC was formed.

Since formation, Hibbs Law, LLC has registered trademarks and copyrights, handled TTAB proceedings, assisted entrepreneurs through entity formation, drafted a range of agreements, advised small business owners in maintaining and enforcing their intellectual property, navigated HIPAA and FDA regulatory compliance for medical device manufacturers and health care providers, litigated federal infringement actions, negotiated settlements and licenses, and acquired registration as a patent attorney. At every turn, Genna’s experiences have been met with satisfaction by her clients, approval by her peers and mentors, and a sense of accomplishment personally and professionally.
