Jeanne became an AccuQuilt educator in 2018. A retired marketing executive, she began quilting in the late 1980's after joining her church guild. She loves to machine piece and hand quilt. Her favorite quilt tops include applique and pieced blocks. She also enjoys creating projects in all needle arts, knitting, crochet and needlepoint. Her passion for the craft and interest in supporting the military led her to join Quilts of Valor, which led to her bigger role as the Secretary for the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Jeanne lives in Omaha, Nebraska with her husband. She is the proud mother of four grown daughters and eight grandchildren.
Jeanne enjoys running in destination marathons and half marathons, including races at Zion National Park, Grand Canyon and the Great Smokey Mountains.
