The Story Collider is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been working since 2010 with storytellers to develop and share stories dedicated to true, personal stories about science. On March 9th Jeannie joined Story Collider at their annual Brain Show to read excerpts from her book and share stories about her brain tumor. She detailed her thoughts during the uncertain time before undergoing brain surgery and facing the fact that she could have brain damage upon waking up. She asks the question: My brain is “me”, am I “me” without it? Visit www.storycollider.org to hear other stories and look out for Jeannie’s in the coming months!
Jeannie was invited to speak at the sold out Marquette Women’s Luncheon, part of Marquette University’s Mission Week 2020. Mission Week encourages students to open themselves up to gratitude, to give gratitude, and to focus on the goodness all around. Prior to a book signing, Jeannie sat down with Acting Dean in the College of Communication Sarah Feldner to share her stories in front of 350 Marquette staff, faculty, students and alumni.
