My name is Teresa, born and raised in Perry, FL. After moving to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida, I decided to stay. Nearly three decades later, I am happy to still be a local Gator girl. I have been a fan of LovEd from the beginning. Back when Isabell was researching and creating the amazing Clarity Program, we were building our friendship. My role as Director of Business Development for LovEd began in 2017 but my belief in LovEd’s mission has existed for years. Each day I am thankful to be a wife, mother, school volunteer, child advocate, Trekkie and board gamer.
Shannon Leigh, Creative Director
Hi, I'm Shannon Leigh, the resident Canadian of the group. A lover of learning, I'm a curious cat who's always seeking to find out the "why" in everything. At LovEd, I'm responsible for the brand's communication, content writing, graphic design, social media, website operation and program development. I also write about relationships in my spare time and have recently developed an affinity for blogging. When I'm not busy brainstorming new avenues for LovEd, you can find me hanging out with my fiancé and two ragdoll cats, catching up on my reading list, practicing hand lettering or snow-blowing my driveway.
Jeanne, Sales and Support Lead
My name is Jeanne and I joined LovEd because I was inspired by Isabell Springer. I had been divorced and remarried before I met Isabell. I could tell you all the reasons why I got divorced and all the reasons why I was so happily married now but I couldn't really tell you specifically what my part was in getting to either place in my life. After I attended "Clarity", I realized that I really do have a great marriage but that it was purely by accident and that I could be purposeful in my relationship success. I learned how to keep the most important part of my life...important. I learned so much that I had to be a part of LovEd and inspire others the way I continue to be inspired. I am grateful everyday for the team of people that work hard everyday to be LovEd.
