Author of The Mother Daughter Dance & Tending The Fire
Jeannie DuBose Bio
Jeannie DuBose is an award-winning author and illustrator of two memoirs: The Mother Daughter Dance and Tending the Fire: The Story of a Marriage. Her compelling presentation style is marked by humor, insight, and vulnerable reflections on her own life. Jeannie is consistently ranked as a superlative speaker; her client list includes Young President's Organization (YPO), Canyon Ranch, The Haden Institute, Rancho La Puerta, as well as a host of schools, faith communities, and women's organizations.
Her topics specialize in subjects relevant to personal growth and are grounded in three core beliefs: 1) everyone has a story to tell - and part of any journey towards wholeness includes finding safe places to tell the truth about our lives, 2) following your joy, as well as the lump in your throat, will lead you home to yourself, and 3) the ongoing invitation of the human journey is to continue awakening to the mystery of your life -- and to respond to that awakening with actions which reveal a deepening love and compassion for every living thing.
A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Jeannie received a masters in counseling psychology from Georgia State University and a certificate in spiritual formation from Columbia Theological Seminary.
