About Jeannine

Jeannine started her business Laugh to Live, LLC in 2006, while she worked full-time for Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania in Marketing Communications where she focused on preventive health care and wellness initiatives. While she was proud of her work communicating messages about prevention, disease management and healthy living, she wanted to set her own course for success and play a more hands-on role in helping people live healthier, happier lives – specifically through the promotion of laughter and humor.

Improvisation has taught Jeannine to think and respond more quickly on her feet and to tap into new solutions when the old playbook of life doesn’t seem to have the answer. She wishes every person in a leadership role would learn the basics of improv that go far beyond creating something funny and teach people to simply create – together!  Jeannine has performed comedy improvisation for 15 years and stand-up comedy for seven years with a few breaks along the way. In 2011, she kicked off her comedy tour of wineries called “Keep Wine-ing He Might Start to Look Like Prince Charming.” The name of her tour was inspired by the humor book she wrote and published in 2010 called “He’s Not Prince Charming When…” based on: some of her dating experiences, stories from friends and some situations that Jeannine concocted with her creativity and love for absurd humor.

At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.
