Jeanne Dischinger enjoyed growing up in Las Cruces, New Mexico and later in Midland, Texas. She graduated from the Univ. of Texas at Arlington in mechanical engineering and moved to Phoenix for work on aircraft engines and defense projects. She found a passion for helping to build and serve the school communities where her children attended through science fairs, girl scouts and parent organizations. Her interests include reading literature and outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, rock climbing and cycling – having hiked in the Grand Canyon more than 30 times. Jeanne has been married for 29 years and has three grown children.
Name two things you are grateful for?
1.) I am thankful for the simple pleasures of riding a bike to work.
2.) I am thankful for the fall rains we’ve had. The resulting desert wildflowers in March will be spectacular.
