Jeannine is originally from the suburbs north of Detroit. She always says, "I’ve got Motown in my blood." She loves the music from that time and place. However, she knew instinctually when she was about 5 years old that she needed to get out of Southeast Michigan. Which she did when she was 19. Since then she has lived in many different places all over the US and in Japan. In her younger days, she lived on a homestead in Alaska for a short time, mastered the Eskimo roll in a kayak and snorkeled on a coral reef in Guam. Her time in Bellingham and at WWU is the longest she has stayed/worked in one place since she started roaming at 19. "Hmmm, might be time for a change..." she thinks.
