About

Jeanie grew up in St. Louis. She and her husband, Andy, lived part time in Cambria for several years  before moving to San Luis Obispo in 1997.

Greensfelder is the author of two books of poetry: “Biting the Apple” and “Marriage and Other Leaps of Faith.”Her poems have been featured on the public radio show“The Writer’s Almanac with Garrison Keillor” and in former U.S. poet laureate Ted Kooser’s column, American Life in Poetry.

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.

A retired psychologist, she volunteers at Hospice of SLO County. She serves as poet laureate for San Luis Obispo County during 2017,18.

In addition to her roles a poet and psychologist, Jeanie enjoys photography and offers a link to some photos in this website.
