Jean has poems in several anthologies including Handprints on the Future and Harvesting Treasures, both Canadian Poetry Association Anthologies. Each month for the past six years Jean has had a poem published in a monthly newsletter. Reciting at various functions is always a pleasurable way for Jean to share the inspirational messages in her poetry. She has also been invited into classrooms on several occasions to share her writing skills with potential young poets. Two articles, entitled "Peace Begins with Me" and "Faith is Key" have been published in Science of Mind magazine.
After taking early retirement from Air Canada (Canadian Airlines Sales Events Coordinator) Jean is now in "refirement". One big adventure was teaching computer courses on cruise ships. This also gave her the opportunity to explore other parts of the world and to meet many new potential readers.
