Raised in Utah, in a family with strong ties to their Italian and Slovenian heritages, Jenean developed an early appreciation and love for different cultures, languages, and philosophies around the world. In Provo, Jenean’s family was unique. Not being part of the predominant culture/religion taught her to adapt and learn the ability to bridge cultural differences.
After graduation from college, Jenean focused on raising her three children as well as her career as a marketing communications professional in the software industry. In 2000 she joined forces with James Derheim to work with him to lend her knowledge of European travel and extended language skills to the team.
While having traveled extensively throughout the United States and Europe during her corporate career, she prefers her travels now, helping clients have the most authentic experience possible in their travels. Jenean enjoys a quest and is adventurous, loves being in nature, but also has a lot of city-savvy. She loves history and shopping as well. Jenean is proficient in French, German, and Italian and is always working on increasing her language abilities.
