Certified Coach, Author, Speaker
“I offer helpful tools and short-term coaching to help breast cancer patients heal inside and out.” Jeannie Schmidt, Two-time Cancer Survivor
Jeannie encourages and leads women at any stage of the cancer journey–diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and “new normal”. In 2002 her diagnosis with breast cancer, offered her most challenging leadership role yet. She persevered through three surgeries and chemotherapy while continuing to manage a team of people in the corporate world, as well as lead a department of a non-profit organization. Now she uses that journey to guide women through the rough seas of cancer and life.
Jeannie and her husband live on the family homestead in Southwest Virginia. They share their “home on the hill” with the “Moo Zoo” – two dogs, a cat and a parrot (as well as the occasional bear, deer, turkey, and lots of little creatures.) Parts of her heart are in Texas and Colorado where her adult children and their families live, including eight wonderful grandchildren.
