Jeannette was born and raised in Providence, R.I., but her family is originally from the Dominican Republic. She is fluent in Spanish and grew up watching the Spanish-language network, Univision.

It was there that her passion for news and informing the community was born.
She earned her bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism from Kent State University. She is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists.
Jeannette comes from a big family. She has 11 nieces and nephews and enjoys spending time with them whenever she can. In her free time, you can find Jeannette at a local coffee shop with a latte and a good book. She also enjoys dancing Salsa and Merengue.
