As the sixth of seven children, Jeanne Marriott learned early the art of negotiation, cooperation and how to rely on faith, humor and heart to get the best out of herself and others. After graduating from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree, Jeanne moved to Boston and spent her next decade and a half in the corporate world. During that time she also lived and worked in New York City and Toronto before returning to her home state of Michigan. Through the years she gained experience in office administration, customer service, desktop publishing, marketing and sales.
In 2006, Jeanne, her husband Joe and their pup moved to northern Lower Michigan. Jeanne worked for the Diocese of Gaylord in communications initially before moving into a development position which combined her passion for mission with a knack for writing grant applications and annual appeals. She currently works for Bear River Health as their Community Liaison. In this position Jeanne is able to leverage her lifetime of experience to provide awareness, create compelling messaging and advocate for recovery.
