Jeanna began her career in midwifery in 2015.  Combining midwifery with her background in foreign politics and her years of experience in international work, she has dedicated her career to global health and advocating for global reproductive rights.  Since then she has provided midwifery and reproductive healthcare services in several countries across the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Asia focusing on the refugee crises stemming from Syria and Bangladesh.  When she is not volunteering overseas she splits her time between California and Texas, where she works in an established midwifery practice that focuses on special circumstance deliveries. ​
