Jeanette works on independent films as a director, writer, creative consultant and acting coach.


Given her education in acting and her work as a Money Manager and Bookkeeper, Jeanette brings a wealth of experience to the table. On set Jeanette is grounded, focused and playful.


She is excited about collaborating on small-scale projects that are rooted in personal narratives. She is especially skilled at assisting artists in turning their early stage ideas into successful productions.


Jeanette firmly believes that art is a powerful tool for social change and it should be accessible to everyone. Despite the over saturation of media on endless streaming platforms, she feels that artists have a unique opportunity to harness the tools of social media, crowdfunding and personal marketing to launch their unique and important passion projects in a post-pandemic world.


If you're a filmmaker in the greater New York area, Jeanette would love to connect with you. Shoot her a message!
