Jeanne’s experience and people skills came from a strong business foundation in her first career in broadcast television, as a news producer, advertising manager and host of travel and wine segments on CBS and NBC affiliates as The Well Traveled Texan. She started the agency in 2014 by personally hosting small group trips to Europe’s wine growing regions, taking it to a full service agency for global travel with a focus on custom itineraries and client service. A life-long learner, Jeanne started her wine education in 2016 with the Court of Master Sommeliers and was recently awarded the Level 3 Award in Wine (with Merit) from London’s Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET).
One of 4 kids born into an Air Force family, Jeanne grew up in Europe and the US, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in Advertising, Radio/Television/Film and French, followed by post graduate studies at UCLA’s school of Film and Television. She and her husband, Layne are parents to two world-wise and very athletic daughters, Delaney and Nicolette, and a sassy little dachshund, Ruby.
Her favorite travel adventures always involve meeting the locals, enjoying great food, wine, and finding the best experiences for families and friends.
