Training Team

Jeannie Alan
Jeannie Alan hails from New York, where she earned a BSRN from the University of Rhode Island and spent 3 years as Head Nurse at an ICU. After her stint in the medical profession, Jeannie became an actress and Casting Director, working steadily in commercials, television and Improv, which laid the groundwork for her training muscle at Eloqui.

Jeannie’s entrepreneurial drive was channeled into ‘Painted by You’ a company she founded that uses ceramics for team building and stress management within corporations. She leveraged this knowledge to create inner city, middle school team building programs. Recently, Jeannie developed Gertie and BB’s Candies with partner Sheri Adams. Their delicious chocolate confections can be found at high end stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
