A documentary highlighting Jean's life story, Against the Wind, has aired on over 400 PBS stations nationwide. In addition to training and racing, Jean serves as a corporate spokesperson for Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. As a motivational speaker, she delights in sharing her 'Dream Big, Work Hard' message at conventions, corporations, schools, and with the media.Now in trade paperback, Determined to Win, chronicles Jean's journey from physical paralysis to true spiritual freedom.
