Our scout, Jean Synodinos, enjoyed stints as a brownie scout in Catonsville, MD and a junior scout in Lancaster, PA. These formative experiences, of which she has limited memory, were followed by the requisite years of teen uncertainty, low self-esteem and angst.
The young adult years began with college (Duke — yes, go Blue Devils). The resulting B.A. in Theater was almost as lucrative as one might expect, but included 500+ performances as the guitar-wielding Sister Albert Maria in the off-Broadway hit Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding from 1989 – 1991.
By day, our scout works in the field of public health communications. By night, she’s a singer-songwriter, and thanks to the Big Scout Project, she’s uncovered a passion for painting and photography. She has come to think of herself as a Creative Generalist, but has thus far hesitated to put that title on a business card.
Austin, TX has been home for over a decade now. She lives with her beautiful, smart mutt Freida in a charming house on the south side of town. Our scout is kind to animals and gardens in spite of repeated failures. A breast cancer survivor, she encourages all women to go get that mammogram. Early detection not only saves lives–it saves the quality of lives.
