Chief Operating Officer / Foster and Adoptive Families, Residential, and Transitional Aged Youth Services
Jeannie earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a Minor in Psychology from CSU Stanislaus and pursued graduate studies in Counseling Psychology at California State University Stanislaus. She was attracted to Aspiranet because of the opportunity to provide individualized services and make a positive difference in the lives of at-risk youth and families. Aspiranet offered a work environment that recognized individual strengths, supported professional growth and promoted creativity, all within a small team environment.
Since joining Aspiranet in 1987, Jeannie has worked in various roles within the agency. Most of her career has been spent in program development, including the Intensive Treatment Foster Care Program, Therapeutic Behavioral Services, Transitional Aged Youth Services, and Wraparound Services. In recent years she has had the pleasure of serving on various statewide implementation and advocacy work groups associated with Continuum of Care Reform and Transitional Age Youth Services.
“Aspiranet is a fulfilling work environment where I am appreciated as an individual, able to balance work and family, and am supported in developing creative solutions that result in positive outcomes for our families. Hope supports everything we want to achieve at Aspiranet, and is what we want our staff and those we serve to see, feel, hear, touch, and move forward with daily.”
