A native New Yorker, Jeanne has lived on both coasts. She worked at a San Francisco-based nonprofit focused on sustainable education and activism. While working closely with their educational publications, she fell in love with communication and its parent, design. Missing home, Jeanne eventually returned to New York and fueled her experience into her role as a project manager in the graphic design and creative industry.
Now at Hyperakt, Jeanne uses her experience in brand development, information design, digital media, and interactive media to work closely with clients to help them advance their goals. She is a driven problem-solver, who enjoys creating a finely tuned project plan and nimbly leading projects from start to finish. She thrives on collaboration and aims to help support innovation among her team. Jeanne has never met a project without a sense of humor, passion, and can-do attitude.
Jeanne earned a degree in comparative literature and enjoys being involved with New York’s literary community in her spare time. Her poetry and essays have appeared online and in print. When not writing, or getting lost at independent bookstores, Jeanne likes to spend time in her neighborhood parks and community gardens. She lives alone in Northern Manhattan, but pines for a dog.Follow @papermaw
