Jennifer Wong

Dr. Jennifer Wong, PhD, serves as Director of Wallis Annenberg GenSpace, an innovative community center made for older adults in Los Angeles. With more than 180 active members and more than 35 weekly classes, GenSpace is creating a thriving community for older adults to connect with others, explore their creativity, and try new things. Through its programming, GenSpace has become a symbol of vibrant aging and Dr. Wong is similarly working to change how people think about growing older. Through events with leaders, experts, and cultural icons, she’s working to tell better stories about what it means to age. Prior to her role at GenSpace, Dr. Wong assisted the California Department of Aging to develop Governor Newsom’s Master Plan on Aging as California’s population of people over 65 is projected to grow sharply in the next decade. Dr. Wong completed her Doctorate in Experimental Psychology from the University of Montana. She holds a Master of Arts in Psychology from Cal State Sacramento and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of San Francisco.
