Jeanine trained as an actress as a mature student on the 3 year Acting programme at City Lit, having acted from a young age. She went on to become an actors' agent, then set up GrammaticArts® in 2013 in response to the need for ESL speakers to access Drama training. The company mission is to advocate the value of the Arts as a tool for personal and professional development.
Jeanine has experienced first hand that the 'behind the scenes' of building a business from scratch is no easy feat, however with passion, grit and determination and an attitude of excellence, Jeanine is navigating GrammaticArts into 2017.
In addition to directing GrammaticArts® Jeanine is a reporter, life coach, writer and more recently an author. She covered the Kingston Business Expo 2015 and 2016, and has previously interviewed actors on the red carpet at the Empire Awards London.
