Jeanette is passionate about building community across cultural difference. This resolve led her to research racial tensions surrounding Confederate monuments, facilitate job skills workshops for immigrant women in Santiago, Chile, and serve as recruitment director and trainer of a student-run peer counseling organization. Jeanette has a BA in Sociology and Latin American Studies from Washington University in St. Louis. Most recently, she taught a Sociology course to degree-seeking inmates at a Missouri state prison through Washington University’s Prison Education Project. Jeanette is excited to be back in the city she calls home to further develop her commitment to public service.
