Jeannie grew up in a mixed-class household in the suburbs of Buffalo, NY. She was politicized in college and has never looked back. She has rallied, protested, built campaigns, and created coalitions for numerous movements. Some highlights include Take Back the Night, consent and communications, Asian American politicization and activation, and an Asian American Studies cluster at her alma mater.
She discovered her love for social justice communications during her prolific zine-producing era in her senior year of college. Her professional communications work began in a college admissions office, to a reproductive justice nonprofit, and finally found a home at Resource Generation where she can bring her humor, political lens, and youthful voice to her work.
Jeannie majored in Philosophy and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University. She currently calls Atlanta, GA, the lands of Muscogee Nation, home.
When not creating memes for Resource Generation, she’s hanging out with her Persian cat, Mantou (“steamed bun” in Mandarin), watering her almost 200 houseplants, cackling loudly about something, or getting her adrenaline rush for the day 20-80 ft in the air via lead climbing or circus aerials.
