Jeannine grew up with her eight brothers and sisters in Georgia and North Carolina. After graduating high school, she traveled the world working as a model, living in Milan, Hong Kong and Paris. Eventually she settled into a bicoastal lifestyle between NY and LA.

Her first big jobs were acting opposite Robert Downey Jr. in "Iron Man" and playing a recurring role as the damaged daughter of Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) on FX's hit show "Nip/Tuck". Jeannine has also starred as the lead in Joe Maggio's "Paper Covers Rock" as a suicidal young mom. This highly-accolated independent film won four awards including the audience award, and a special best actress award created just for her performance at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. She recently shot the lead in "Five Hours South" and is set to star in "Two Girls", to be directed by Joe Maggio later this year
