Meet Jeanne Dear, pronounced [Zhann].

She lives in Glendale and is a member of 3 Peaks 3 Weeks Challenge, an annual all-female fundraiser to provide awareness in Africa for three peak issues: environment, education, and health. Funds raised will provide financial support for African grassroots organizations.

Jeanne departs in a few days to start her journey where she’ll summit Mt. Kenya, Mt. Meru, and Mt. Kilimanjaro. YES! You go, girl!

I interviewed Jeanne several weeks ago and am currently piecing the article together. What an infectious, inspirational attitude she has! The article will be published in A&Us February issue.
