She’s a member of the Court of Master Sommeliers, and was awarded the Level 3 Award in Wine with merit, from London’s Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET).

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 daughters, Delaney and Nicki, and a sassy dachshund, Ruby. She’s on the road at least once a month discovering new experiences for clients. Her recent stops include hiking Peru’s Machu Picchu, a 20th anniversary trip to St Barths, and June in Europe that took the family on a yacht charter through the Greek islands, road tripping through Puglia, Italy and hosting six eighteen year olds in Spain and Paris for her daughter’s high school graduation trip. As the French say…On Y Va! Let’s Go!
