WHAT SYMBOLIZES ONE'S LIFE & WORK?

Can you guess the elements of my personal logo? For many years they were interspersed throughout my work. Delighting in the company of kitties removed one element...design work gave way to...well, yes, the first element in this logo...

MARKETING, PUBLIC RELATIONS, DEVELOPMENT

This placard presents the Ws of media releases...but it doesn't address the Why and How of the organization offering an event.  For decades I have strived to help individuals, entrepreneurs, and the executives of profit and non-profit organizations achieve their personal and professional goals.  Please visit my marketing website for free tips on defining your brand and refining your development strategies.

ALWAYS WORDSMITHING

Throughout my personal and professional life, wordsmithing has been at the heart of my endeavors. The performing arts, teaching, research, non-fiction, fiction, marketing, public performance and motivational speaking have all required me to expand my abilities to communicate with people of myriad backgrounds.

Sadly, I've never achieved the quality of penmanship desired by my teachers...

JEANNE'S BACKGROUND

Academically, Jeanne was accepted for membership in the Phi Beta Kappa Society [the nation's oldest academic honor society) while completing her Bachelor of Arts degree in History at the University of Hawai`i. During graduate studies of post-World War II Japan, she became a member of Phi Alpha Theta [the national history honor society] and received a teaching assistantship in the World Civilization Program in the History Department of the University of Hawai`i. Jeanne is also a lifetime member of the Highland Division of the British Association of Teachers of Dancing, Arizona Mystery Writers, Sisters in Crime, and the National Writers Union


Focusing on life's synchronicity, her public addresses are noted for intercultural references and historical asides.

to assist writers, authors, and other creative professionals achieve their desired potential.
