Jeanne is an investigative journalist covering climate, agriculture, and renewable energy for over 4 years. With a Master’s Degree in chemistry from the University of Maryland, she’s passionate about non-toxic living, going to great lengths to keep the air, water, and food as pure as possible for her family.
She’s extremely aware of the toxins present in consumer products and always on the lookout for non-toxic alternatives that fit a carbon-negative lifestyle. A pro at consumer research, Jeanne loves probing the minds of customer service representatives of companies both large and small to get at little-known facts about their products and relay them to concerned readers.
She has perfected the art and science of investigations as Research Director for a nutrition non-profit since 2005. In a former life, Jeanne served for three years as a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa, teaching high school science in French.
When she’s not reading the latest journal articles or scientific reports on air or water quality, or on toxins in products, Jeanne can be found tending to her family’s organic garden or creating a no-mow lawn with native plants.
