Her career in the private sector spanned nearly two decades before co-founding the Case Foundation in 1997. Before the Case Foundation, she was a senior executive at America Online, Inc. where she directed the marketing and branding that helped bring AOL to the masses. In addition, Jean currently serves on the boards of National Geographic Partners and the White House Historical Association, as well as on the advisory boards of the Brain Trust Accelerator Fund, Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative and Georgetown University’s Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation.
