After living in cities and suburbs, Jeannie made the move to beautiful Carbon County in 1989, with her husband, David, and son, Andy into a small house in the woods. She began volunteering at Carbon County Environmental Education Center in 1993, while pursuing a degree in elementary education at East Stroudsburg University. While dividing her time between college and home, she taught visiting school groups, and cared for injured wildlife (both came through the door at CCEEC) on a daily basis. After graduating from ESU, and four LONG years of substitute teaching, her dream came true and she was hired as a fulltime Naturalist at CCEEC in 1998!
In 2005, her husband bought her very first digital camera and she was hooked! She was mesmerized by what she saw through her lens. This led to wanting to know more about the art of photography and she has taken numerous classes ...always wanting to learn more !
"There is a peace and a calm that comes over me when I am behind the lens. Spending time in the woods alone with my camera is one of the most relaxing things I can think of. "
