Comments in the zoom chat during the event:

Bev Wright:

  • I still have the materials that Jeannine and her coach partner created when I first started my journey as a coach. She has always been welcoming to be a new coach and is someone I have long admired as a colleague. Thank you for your many contributions.

Agnes Mura:

  • Jeannine, you and Lee accelerated my becoming a professional coach more than anyone else in the mid-nineties. Inviting me and encouraging me to feel capable and a sort of junior peer early on immediately turbo-charged my commitment to become a true professional by never stopping my coach education – which started with you. That we have found ways to remain both work colleagues and “tele-tea friends” never stops enriching me. I love you dearly!

Tamera Bennet:

  • Thank you for allowing me to be a part of celebrating Jeannine!

Carollyne Conllin:

  • Jeannine, this gathering reminds me of what I’ve heard from you so often- how the coaches in your world are your family. What a productive family you have grown! So grateful to be part of your amazing coaching family.

    “I have known Jeannine since we had the coaching meeting in Santa Fe many years ago. She and I connected right away on deep seated concerns we both shared. Since then we have kept up a regular dialogue. I want to add that I appreciate her intelligence, her humility, how she opens herself for connection and shows resourcefulness in life and work. If I read her bio, I can talk myself into being intimidated but then when I am with Jeannine, I feel like she creates the space for me to be my best self. And I love that she is an adventurer in life and when she meets any setback, she turns it into what is possible.”

    I have known Jeannine (whom I lovingly call Neanie) for my entire life. She met my family while attending Texas A&M, and my father worked for the same university. She’d often come by our home whenever we had extra goulash – although that didn’t happen as often as we probably would have liked. As I’m told, none of us had more than two nickels to rub together at that time. Still, she and Art have been family since I was born, and most people don’t know she’s even my Godmother! She is by far and away the kindest person I know and has always supported my entire family and me. I will never forget that she provided the invocation and both my son’s Eagle Scout ceremony and my retirement ceremony. Let’s say she will be there during the most critical times.
    My favorite story: my mother still lives in a little town in Arkansas called Rudy. Actually, she lives more than five miles outside Rudy, deep in the Ozark Mountains. Neanie would often love her visits to Arkansas because she could truly “unplug” from the world. That was possible because my mother – to this day – still doesn’t have cell reception at her house and only recently got wifi! You often find Neanie pulling weeds from a garden or piddling in the yard. It was, and still is, a way for her to unplug from the digital world. Congratulations, Neanie, you deserve this award and many more. We love you and are genuinely proud. Art and my Dad are smiling.
