Born in Baltimore, MD. Studied Early Childhood Development. She has always been very involved with the care of animals, bringing them home if they were sick or homeless, to take care of or make sure they received the care and nourishment they needed. While other kids were baby-sitting, Jeanne was pet sitting. Her passion for caring runs deep, its part of her DNA, and she absolutely loves it. She's always had pets in her life.
In 1996 she and Tummie met on-line. They talked and visited each other frequently, and found that they had much in common. She moved to Daleville, AL and has been here ever since. Together they raised a son, who is now a major in the USAF. He's married and has 2 beautiful children, a girl and a boy. Jeanne has the gift of communicating with animals and is quite the "animal whisperer".
Born in Bussum, the Netherlands to an American (Cajun) father and Dutch mother, she grew up in the Netherlands, Germany, and Spain. Her family traveled all over Europe. She attended the Dutch Royal Academy of Pedagogics and graduated with a degree in Education. In 1978 her family moved to Daleville, AL. She decided to come along for a year, but once here, she loved it and resolved to stay here. She's been in this area since then. Not being able to find work as a teacher with her Dutch Education degree, other than substitute teaching, she went back to school. First completed her LPN studies, then worked as an LPN while completing her RN studies. She worked as a nurse for over 30 years. Retired from nursing in 2008. She, too, has always been involved with the care of animals, bringing sick and/or homeless animals home and always had pets- varied from lizards to birds, fish, turtles, dogs and cats.
