Who I Am
My name is Jeannie. I am Wife to my amazing husband, Mommy to two awesome offspring (daughter born 1996 and son born 2015), and NaNa to my wonderful grandson (also born 2015).
I spent over 20 years in the corporate world before switching careers to stay at home spouse and parent with the birth of our son. It’s been a big adjustment for me but I feel really fortunate that my family budgeting skills have allowed me to be primary caregiver for our son.
Our son was diagnosed with autism in 2017 so he and I have a full schedule of therapies for him in addition to regular everyday life. I am also on the spectrum so I have a unique advantage over other parents in that I have personal firsthand knowledge of what it is like to be an autistic child.
I am a mid-century vintage fan. My favorite color is pink. I love to bake and have a collection of vintage Pyrex and Corelle dishes. I love to collect old recipes and have tried out a few. I am a history buff making frequent use of our PBS Passport membership.
