My name is Jeanne Brown and I have been with Easterseals Jumpstart for 16 months. I received my Masters in Social Work from Governors State University in 2018. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Wayne, for 35 years. We have two children, Jacob (33) and Kayla (29), and 5 grandchildren, Kristina, Madison, Lily, Abigail and Mitchell. Before joining Easterseals Jumpstart, I have worked in public health, mental health, and senior health. I volunteer as a church lay speaker, hospice volunteer visitor, and with the Iroquois County Sexual Assault Services hotline. I enjoy reading, quilting and spending time with my family.
Jumpstart has given me the opportunity to learn the importance of play in child development and family well being. Helping families reach their personal goals, utilize community resources and enjoy family activities together is rewarding.
