Jeannene moved to the Twin Cities in 2016 after graduating with her BA in English Literature from Cornell College. During her time at Cornell, she studied abroad in Amman, Jordan, adding Arabic to the list of languages she’s determined to learn. She also had the opportunity to play the bassoon and the steel drums throughout her time there. Her college steel drums band, Pandemonium, performed in several Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans in 2016!
Once in the Twin Cities, she served as an Americorps volunteer for two years before joining Circus Juventas as the School Coordinator. She really enjoys baking in her free time, and is always looking for new recipes to try out.
