Jeanne a native of Co Kerry, has always been a creative person having studied violin and Irish dance since childhood. She caught the acting bug while training to be a teacher in Limerick. Jeanne had been involved in dramatic arts in the city for over 10 years before deciding to turn her passion for bringing characters to life into a career. She went on to study acting for screen and has relished bringing characters to life on screen as well as on stage. She has also recently received an MA in dance education from the University of Limerick.
