Having become familiar with the Architectural Review Board while doing a renovation on their house, Jean became a member of the Board in early 2011 and served as Chair from late 2012 until the end of 2014 at which time the ARB was disbanded.

Prior to retirement, Jean worked over thirty years in various financial positions including Controller and Audit Manager for a Fortune 50 company and Financial Reporting Manager for a mid-size Software Company. During her first term in Council she drew from her financial and administrative experience to analyze the city's budget, create and study various annexation scenarios and to lead the committee that launched the new Website in early 2018.
