HELLO, I'M JEANETTE

... a human-centered strategist by birth and by trade

I seem to have been put on this planet to:

  1. Connect 

  2. Learn

  3. Make lists (aka synthesize, organize, implement)


I'm driven by an inherent desire to better understand others and myself, and to use this knowledge – and list-making inclination! – to help people get what they want and need.

It's not just what I do, it's who I am.
