Jeanie Greensfelder is a poet and psychologist. She is honored to serve as San Luis Obispo County’s poet laureate during 2017, 2018.

Author of Biting the Apple (Penciled In, 2012) and Marriage and Other Leaps of Faith (Penciled In, 2015), her poems have been published at Writer’s Almanac and American Life in Poetry, the On Being blog, and multiple anthologies and journals.

Through her poetry, she seeks to understand herself and others on this shared journey, filled, as Joseph Campbell wrote, with sorrowful joys and joyful sorrows.
