Employee Spotlight: Jeanie Feavel

On behalf of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.

Jeanie Feavel began working at Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C. in 2004 as a paralegal to Avi Berk, in the personal injury section. She came to the firm with many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, with a degree in communications, Jeanie worked in the sales department of a large corporation. When the company closed the office she was working in, she wasn’t sure where her future would take her. “I never planned to be a paralegal. One of my co-workers remarked to me that he thought I would make a good legal secretary. As fate would have it, one of the large local firms was looking for a legal secretary. I applied and got the job. And, the rest is history!”

Several years ago, Jeanie retired from full-time status and now works part-time. One of her favorite memories from the past few years has been having more time to bake and read. When not working, Jeanie enjoys, trips to the farm market, spending time with her golden retriever, watching the Green Bay Packers and going out to eat with friends.

Although Jeanie is a well-respected member of the Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C. team, she may be best known around the office for her delicious baked goods, like coffee cake, banana bread and lemon bars.
