Learning to swim, bike and run was a turning-point in Jeannete's life. With no athletic background, Jeannete started competing in triathlons in her 40’s. A late start in life has not stopped her from being successful and competitive.

Moreover, she have done numerous run races, bike events and bike century rides.
"Triathlon has changed my life. I’m now a much fitter, healthier and happier person than I’ve ever been. I have been
naturally drawn into the coaching world since I love to help and encourage others pursue fitness, whether it’s into
the triathlon world or personal training. It has become my passion. I think a coach should be a good communicator
and a good listener, and I believe a coach has several responsibilities towards the client: to be committed, to
develop trust, to care for the athlete, and to perform in a professional matter. After all, the athlete trusts that the
coach will help her pursue and achieve her goals."
Jeannete's passion for the sport has led her to become an excellent coach. Sharing her experiences and
knowledges she's encouraging many people to pursue an active lifestyle. She has coached both beginners and
experience athletes in finishing their first triathlon to place in their age group.
Past seasons she was an Active-athlete-Ambassador for Sony, SunRype and 3W races.
