Jeanne received her Registered Nursing Degree from Richmond Community College in North Carolina. She has worked in several hospital settings including Medical/Surgical, Step-Down Units, Hospice and Long-term Care. She has been the RN night supervisor in several of those settings providing nursing care and supervision for many patients. She recently moved to Duchesne, Utah to be a traveling nurse on the west coast. She found that traveling did not bring the rewards of nursing that she was looking for and began looking for a nursing setting closer to home that was not in the hospitals. She and the Second Nature Wilderness Program in Duchesne found each other in January of 2011. Jeanne also is a Certified Red Cross CPR instructor and a Certified Wilderness First Responder. Prior to becoming an RN, Jeanne was a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, Licensed in North Carolina, working at Richmond County School System, providing therapy to 15 schools. She also worked in Long-term Care and Home Health settings, providing therapy to a variety of clients.

Jeanne grew up in Oregon and has lived in Maine, Louisiana, Texas, Colorado and North Carolina. She and her husband, Ed, love the outdoors including hiking and camping. While in North Carolina, they did volunteer work for the RED CROSS, receiving the Governor's Appreciation Award for their participation in a North Carolina Disaster. Jeanne and Ed have a blended family of six children and 5 grandchildren with the youngest child and grandchild planning to join them in Duchesne this summer. Jeanne's hobbies include raising American Eskimo Dogs, woodworking, gardening, hiking, reading, and traveling.
