In this episode, Jessica sits down with Jeanette Gregory to unpack her creative superpowers around people-wrangling, event activation, overcoming challenges with alcohol early in her career (leading to her celebrating 12 years of sobriety), and how she’s embracing her abilities to shine in the worlds of film festivals as an organization guru.
Jeanette hails from Salt Lake then big risks she did take. First a Geology major, then she changed her behavior. To Atlanta she fled and did film festivals instead. Through office jobs and night school, she began collecting admin tools. Wrangled volunteers while in a skirt, with pockets, found her place in media as a corporate sprocket. Now she organizes creatives, dazzles and amazes, toddler mom, thrifting bomb, crafty maker, mover and shaker, trying her best to not be a faker.
She also collects Smith Corona typewriters; second favorite collection.
