Growing up in Philadelphia, PA, I was the middle child of 5 (3 brothers and 1 sister). We lived on a city block where there were 50 row homes on each side and at least 100+ kids on our street. From the time we got up until the time we went to bed, there was plenty to do in the neighborhood. At that time, Mom was at home while Dad carpooled to work with other fathers in the neighborhood.
Moved to Glenside, PA when I was 12 and started babysitting, with at least 3 families. At the same time my mother started to work as a secretary for a firm around the corner from our home. I also picked up a part-time job after school and on weekends at the fast food chain in our area. After high school, I started full time work at Prudential in their home office. My career with Prudential was 18 years with a few years off in between to raise my two children.
After Prudential, I went to Dentsply Sirona (formerly Dentsply International) to support the CEO and Board of Directors. My career lasted 15 years until I recently decided to semi-retire and move back to the Camp Hill area.
Jean attended Central Penn Business school and studied computer science. Recently moving back to the Camp Hill area to be close to her two grown daughters with families of their own. She enjoys her family and especially her 5 grandchildren.
