History: Jeannde’s Mother was a classical ballerina with the San Francisco Opera Ballet & soloist with Pacific Dance Theater & the Russian Opera Ballet Association. Her Father was a featured soloist with the Halprin-Lathrop Dancers & visual artist. Later as a team they dedicated their passion for the arts through children’s programs facilitating classes, workshops & T.V. programming in the San Fransisco Bay area. Both Jeannde and her sister followed in their parents footsteps, devoting themselves to dance as well as other artistic endeavours. Jeannde followed her mothers path of classical ballet, beginning her career at an early age. Later, encouraged by her role as a young mother, Jeannde developed & implemented children’s programs, cultivating creative inspiration & expression through the Frederick County Parks & Recreation. With her children now grown she was afforded the time to devote over a decade of training & teaching to Pilates as a certified instructor in both mat & apparatus. Through these genres she worked with diverse groups including children, expectant mothers & those challenged both physically & or emotionally. Her on going dedication to the use of movement, as a significant tool for healing & insight, once again, grounded her in her families roots. Later her training as a HypnoBirthing Practitioner (Mongan Method) proved to be a major catalyst leading her to her present vocation. All of these modalities, collectively, gave her a unique foundation full of uncommon experiences. Her upbringing coupled with her training over the last 35 years in the Healing and Creative Arts arena further encouraged her empathetic abilities while providing a unique opportunity to pursue her passion of championing women & their families.
