Janielle Moye, Management Development Team, GEICO
Hi! I’m Janielle Moye, most folks call me Jane but either is fine. I was born and raised in Queens, New York and I currently live in Suffolk County. My Alma Mater is Queens College and I was able to graduate with a major in Psychology, a minor is Business and Liberal Arts and an additional minor in Counseling & Student Services in 2020. During my time as a senior in undergrad I worked with Adults with Autism. After graduating I applied to and successfully stared working at GEICO full time within their Management Development Program. My current goals would include developing more as a young woman in Cooperate America while sharpening my leadership skills. Outside of work I enjoy traveling, listening to all kinds of music, and watching Anime.
