Jeannine has grown up at the racetrack. Being Ken's daughter, she has been around motorcycles since she was quite young. She began riding in the dirt on a PW50 when she was 9 years old. As she got older, Jeannine wanted to ride on the street. Ken felt it was a good idea to have her learn what it felt like to ride at street speeds in an environment that didn't inlude distracted drivers and sandy roads, so she rode on the track before ever riding on the street. Her first track day was aboard Ken's former MZ Scorpion racer, which then became her first street bike.

Since then, Jeannine has done many track days. She started getting fast and showed her interest and skill at communicating complex riding techniques to customers, so, all nepotism aside, Ken hired her as a Control Rider. He does not regret that decision.
