How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
In third grade, Jeneen’s mother saw a passion for visual arts. “She got me signed up for The Philadelphia Art Camp, one of the highest quality programs in Mount Airy section of Philadelphia. I went until I was too old to go! My Mom was perceptive enough to let me feel my way into what interested me.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Jeneen had planned to go into law, possibly doing some pro bono work. But she discovered economic development closely related to her passion for helping others gain independence through business. “It was a real turning point to decline the law school’s offer and earn a Master’s Degree in Economic Development instead.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“What really matters is living life on purpose. I was there when both my parents drew their last breath, and I’m so clear about this. I’m happy to be able to do what I love every day, and even happier there is tangible evidence my work enriches the lives of others.”
