Jean was born in October 1977 in Chillicothe, Ohio. She grew up in Gallipolis, Ohio and graduated from Gallia Academy High School in 1996. After graduation, Jean attended a few colleges before she realized college life just wasn’t for her. That exploratory path landed her in North Carolina.
In the late 90s, Jean started building a career in office administration. An avid writer and editor, even then, she never considered leaving her day job, so she remained in that job until she was terminated in 2011. At the time, she thought her life was over. Jean had no idea her best life was just beginning. Had she not been fired, she might not have taken the time to cultivate her talents and skills. And, she certainly wouldn’t be venturing into all that she is today.
Author, mentor, entrepreneur, and all-around tech-chick, Walker has spent the majority of her freelance career ghostwriting and assisting numerous blog writers, non-profits, and small business owners. As advertising platforms started to change, Jean began working more and more on various social media campaigns and even more books for others. This work prompted her to write her very first book, a short read that packs a powerful punch, You Define Your Own Success: 5 Steps to Living the Life You Never Knew You Wanted… until Now.
As former co-founder/CEO of Tomboy Princess, Walker is well-known for her ability to help others find and keep their motivation burning. She is a source of encouragement and inspiration for women all over the world. Often allowing her readers to follow along as she battles her own weaknesses, Jean continuously proves that she’s not just a woman making up stories – she lives what she writes. That’s why her readers love her. They identify with her and they admire her openness.
Currently, Jean is the Chief Communications Officer (CCO) with The Regear Group LLC. The Regear Group is the parent company of BeingJean.com, National School of Creative Arts and Entertainment, and Regear Marketing. Tyrrel Walker (Jean’s husband) is the founder and CEO of The Regear Group LLC and two of its subsidiaries.
Jean lives with her husband, children, and their American Shar-pei, Sadie. When she’s not sitting with her laptop somewhere working, she enjoys all genres of music, romantic comedies and classic movies, football, and most sitcoms. She writes of herself:
“…wife, mother, certified Jesus lover, music enthusiast, laugh-er, smile-er… Get ur thinkin’ up!”
