Jeanette is originally from the great state of Texas, born in San Antonio. Once she graduated from Texas State University with her handy, dandy Journalism degree, she bolted to the wonderfully wacky city of Los Angeles where she spent half of her life working in the music business before committing to a writing career. She also spent a brief stint in sunny Miami Beach.
Jeanette worked as a publicist for an independent record label and from there worked in radio going on to make her mark at a popular music video channel writing promotional copy, interviewing music artists, filming concerts, editing promotional spots and everything in between. She eventually left the music industry to focus solely on her writing. After paying her dues, she founded and appointed herself editor-in-chief of one of the first online magazines for young Latinas. She went on to write for several print and online publications, writing everything from creative articles to press releases to web content.
Today, Jeanette is one of the founders of Him and Her, a web and content creative studio, and recently opened Bark, her public relations and marketing company catering to the creative community.
