In addition to being a soul coach, Jeanine is an Associate Professor of Literacy and Language, African American Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at a Research I University. She focuses on dismantling supremacist patriarchies through research, teaching, and coaching. As a sociocultural literacist, she works to understand personal and public voices and stories to solve personal and public problems. She does this by researching the evolutionary nature and function of literacies and texts through the discourses of narrative research. Her work exposes impetuses for various personal and social ills such as racism, sexism, and ableism.
She loves to meditate way before dawn, work out like a soldier, and shop alone. She prefers rum to wine, jeans to skirts, and likes her heels sky high (except when she's wearing cowboy boots). Every year she asks her stylist to cornrow and bead her hair in homage to Patrice Rushen and Stevie Wonder (if you know of these artists and understand why demonstrating embodied respect for them is important, you can probably be friends). She believes in ghosts, fairies, and hobbits (for real). Musically, she vibes to old school everything (hip hop, R&B, jazz, rock, and classical) and especially digs Hildegard von Bingen. She trusts children a little bit more than adults, respects teens for their fearlessness, admires elders for their tenacity, and occasionally prefers the company of dogs to people. She's really getting into interior design and has a penchant for acquiring east coast real estate. She is also a survivor of multiple terrors in love.
