At the young age of three, Jeannette and her parents, all of their belongings, siblings, and three horses traveled over 1,000 miles from Chino Valley, Arizona, to relocate in the beautiful state of Idaho and the tiny community of Lucile, on the Main Salmon River.
The family purchased a large two-story home with acreage that included an RV park, gas station, small general store and Post Office (inside the home). Shortly after moving the family in, the Post Office moved to a brand-new location, and eventually the general store closed as well. Her parents contracted for the building of the Lucile Café on US Highway 95. They were owner operators for several years before selling the café and the original home to build a two-story log home on the banks of the Salmon River nearby.
Jeannette actively participated in 4-H projects, rodeos, and high school sports while attending Salmon River Schools in Riggins.
Her most interesting jobs after high school were working on a fish tendering boat in Alaska, exercising Arabian horses in a dedicated swimming pool in Phoenix, Arizona, and clean room operator for Micron Technology in Boise, Idaho.
She owned and operated a digital photography/videography business (pioneered by her parents) on the Salmon River for over seven years. Jeannette completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management online in the fall of 2014. Shortly afterwards, she and her husband, being empty nesters, moved to the Lewis-Clark Valley to work and be closer to grandchildren.
Jeannette developed an interested in real estate after assisting her parents with the sale of their lovely, custom-built home overlooking the Salmon River.
Late in 2018, she completed licensing requirements for both Washington and Idaho, then in March 2019, Jeannette joined Joe and Michele at Quad Cities Realty.
She continues to work full-time in the public sector as a Business Consultant for the North Central Idaho Small Business Development Center in Lewiston.
In her free time, Jeannette enjoys hiking, fly fishing on beautiful Idaho trout streams, and spending time with her family and friends.
