Jeannine Marie's first of three children' books, Looking in the Mirror, was published July 2012. Her highly anticipated second book,Cuckoo Bananas-Shield Against Bullying,was released in 2019.Without a budget for distribution or advertising, Jeannine is relying on recommendations and great reviews. She is receiving both! Her recommendations are not only from children, parents, psychologists, teachers, and schools; Jeannine has also received top honor's from the Writer's Digest Book Awards in 2017.

In addition to her picture books, Jeannine will be publishing the first of two novels, Silent Lucidity, in spring of 2024.

Drawing from her own childhood of abuse and family dysfunction, Jeannine teaches ways in which to find your own light, no matter your age, circumstance or history. She is most proud of breaking the cycle of abuse for her own daughter, never raising her hands except to demonstrate love. Her daughter is the living proof of how different life is when you are nurtured with love and taught the importance of loving yourself.

As founder and Managing Partner of bunk2bunk, LLP, it is Jeannine’s hope to spread love, happiness, and empowerment from her bunk to your bunk with books and other products and services.

It is never too late to start a new story. Jeannine wants to help you begin to create yours.

Motivational, Inspirational, and Life Coaching

Jeannine Marie received her BBA from Pace University. She worked for decades as a tax professional, for such firms as jetBlue, United Rentals, Pricewaterhousecoopers, and Forbes.  At Brown Brothers Harriman, she was the Vice President of tax compliance and over the course of her career has sourced herself out as a consultant to firms in New York and Connecticut.

While working for CPA firms, Jeannine noticed her upbeat personality and teaching skills were soon in demand. She conducted many seminars in New York and Connecticut for the professional staff and partners. Eventually, Jeannine was asked to take over “lunch and learn” seminars, which was such a success, and she was asked to devise a curriculum to teach staff at all levels, at the request of the partners of the firm. Her quick wit and ability to make everyone feel comfortable enough to ask questions, increased the quality of the product and the morale of the staff.

Abused from birth to young adulthood, Jeannine has always had compassion for children. As a young teenager, she worked with the deaf and mentally challenged. As an adult, she had mentored children and taught Sunday school for years. In addition, she had spoken on a weekly basis at Silver Hill in New Caanan, CT. She has also given seminars throughout CT for teens and adults, mentored children of parents who are incarcerated, spoken at Wolcott High School for Career Day, taught a class on "How to Write a Memoir" at BOCES, and has done several readings for children at day schools and after school programs.

After becoming a single parent, Jeannine began the journey of breaking the cycle of abuse to allow her daughter to have self-esteem and know real love. To successfully accomplish her mission, she realized she needed to heal her own past in order to give her daughter a great future. After years of therapy and studying, Jeannine was able to raise an outstanding human being and see first hand that knowledge, love, humor, and determination can move mountains.

The time has come for Jeannine to share her wisdom and stories with the universe. Her first children’s book, Looking in the Mirror, begins her new journey of teaching all she has learned. Self-love needs to begin at an early age, and Jeannine’s book teaches children and reminds parents to love and be good to your “self”.

Jeannine’s first novel, Silent Lucidity- Are You a Prisoner of Your Mind?"will be available in the spring – 2024. In this book, we follow the journey from abuse to love and everything that happens in between - life, love, joy, heartache, sexuality, relationships, friendships, forgiveness, hope, and finally peace.

In Jeannine’s workshops, coaching, and speaking events, Jeannine discusses how to be motivated and inspired to live your best life and to get there faster than you thought possible.
