As a law student, Jeanne founded an award-winning Ms. JD initiative by connecting 200+ students with each other for mentorship and networking.

After witnessing the devastating impact of Hurricane María in 2017, she got involved in disaster response efforts and since then, has been committed to improving disaster resilience in our communities. Jeanne currently serves as the Vice-Director of the American Bar Association Disaster Legal Services Program, which in partnership with legal help organizations and programs across the country, provides free legal assistance to disaster survivors.
