Her mother, Jen, is the more popular of the two as she served as the 34th White House press secretary under the Biden Administration. Before that, she was the White House deputy press secretary (2009), White House deputy communications director (2009–2011), spokesperson for the United States Department of State (2013–2015), and White House communications director (2015–2017) under the Obama administration.

The famous meeting between Genevieve Mecher and President Obama happened in 2016. At this time, Genevieve’s mother was working in the White House as the communications director for the Obama administration. It is unclear why Jen had her kid with her at the White House, but she had brought her daughter, who was still a toddler, to her workplace and got the opportunity to enter the Oval Office, where she met with the President.

President Obama has a reputation for having a sense of humor and making light of any situation. He also loves to play around a bit when the time calls for it, whether with a young person or an older one. So, it was not surprising to those around when he played around with Genevieve when the opportunity presented itself.

The President folded his sleeves and got on his knees to crawl like her. He also walked around with her in his office. Pictures of Obama crawling and walking alongside Genevieve were subsequently taken and posted on social media, instantly making Genevieve famous.

Where is Genevieve Mecher Now?

Genevieve Mecher currently resides with her family in Virginia, where they own a home reported to be worth about $1.638 million. The young lady is still of school age and would be enrolled in one of the better institutions in the area. 

Details of the school are, however, not known to the public as her parents would want her to have a normal life despite the early exposure she had for crawling with the President as a one-year-old.
