GET TO KNOW JEANNE!
I would love to help your family navigate the school landscape in the greater Seattle area. I am an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and I have strong relationships with both public and independent schools in the Seattle area. I have visited over 60+ Seattle area public and independent schools and continue to attend open houses, school board meetings and school related events year round.
I am a Seattle native, parent of twin teens and a former marketing executive who spent 20+ years at various Fortune 500 companies including Microsoft, Starbucks and the Omnicom Group. In addition to having lived in several Seattle neighborhoods, as well as Mercer Island and Bellevue, WA, I have resided in New York City, Boulder, CO, Dallas, TX, and Singapore.
As an expat in Singapore, I began advising new families on schools and life in Singapore as a favor to friends. I found I loved assisting families with their transition especially learning more about their children and introducing them to the available school choices.
In 2014, when our family moved back to my hometown of Seattle, I was contracted to consult for School Choice International (SCI), a global education firm. I specialized in research of preschool through high school programs for relocating executive families providing school evaluations and personalized school tours for Microsoft, T-Mobile, Russell Financial and Starbucks.
I consulted in the Seattle area for SCI for two years and then formed my own company, Savvy on Seattle. Having my own company allows me to continue to partner with additional Seattle area companies to assist their new hires and also I now work with individual families relocating to the Seattle area outside of a corporate move package. It also enables me to offer school consulting to families already residing in the Seattle area that are looking for a bit of "insider" information and guidance whether on their local public schools, choice schools or the wide range of independent schools.
Please feel free to reach out for a complimentary 15 minute conversation and also view my blog for helpful articles about the Seattle area and the school landscape.
