She is a Wildlife Biologist with an MSc in Zoology from Stellenbosch University. During her time at university, she focused on research projects based in the Karoo and the Cederberg that were aimed at understanding the ecology of species living within these areas. After a few years in the television industry as a Researcher and Production Manager for conservation-based content, Jeannie found her way back to the Cederberg, where she has now been with the Cape Leopard Trust for almost ten years.
Jeannie is extremely dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and wilderness areas and has devoted her life to making a difference through her work. Even on the toughest days, this passion and desire to have a positive impact on the natural world, has carried her through and inspired her to never stop fighting to ensure the protection and conservation of the leopards of the Cape.
