What’s a wave-riding, world-traveling lawyer and mother of four doing in the life sciences industry? Meet Jenean: she’s redefining what it means to make a meaningful impact at the C-level.
After earning her law degree and working with a large regional law firm for several years, she opened her own private law practice and took on an adjunct professorship at Rutgers Law School.
In 2017, Jenean joined PeproTech as a legal consultant and was immediately taken with our tightknit team, the aspirations of the organization, and the abundant possibilities of the life sciences. PeproTech recognized her obvious talent, passionate commitment and incredible potential; and made her General Counsel—the first in the company's history.
Over the years, as a result of Jenean’s ability to make connections and address issues and efficiencies, her role organically grew. Now, in addition to supervising several teams and departments, Jenean spends her days connecting with our global subsidiaries, handling contract negotiations, and analyzing future market directions. A highly skilled leader with an extraordinary sense of team spirit, she's always willing to roll up her sleeves and help fulfill orders—ensuring that our customers receive our best service and support.
Jenean is especially excited about the future of PeproTech’s GMP line and the potential it has to make an impact on the world. She takes pride in the fact that we make these important products from start to finish, ensuring their quality at every step of their creation.
But even with her busy schedule, she still makes time for what matters most: helping people. For example, she spearheaded the creation of a Diversity and Inclusion Committee and has helped launch a scholarship program for self-identified minorities. Her team continually promotes the importance of diversity in the life sciences on behalf of the company.
When she's not in the office, Jenean can usually be found outdoors—skydiving, wakeboarding, shooting hoops with her children, or traveling with her family. Her mantra is “living is the only thing worth dying for,” and she truly takes advantage of all the world has to offer. From surfing in Hawaii to experiencing new places and cultures with her family, Jenean is committed to growing into a more enlightened global citizen each and every day.Back To Top
