Jeanne has had a life-long passion for California native plants and is happiest when exploring, photographing, propagating and growing these fascinating plants. For more than 30 years, she lived in Davis, where she worked at student services at UC Davis and took University extension courses on wildflowers. After moving to the Sierra foothills in 2011, she was amazed to discover the abundance of native plants in Nevada and Placer counties — over 2,000 species.

She has been president of the Redbud Chapter of the CNPS for the past five years and has been Co-Plant Sale chair for the past four years.
