Jeanne Ross began her career with CIA in January 1985 as a Disguise Technical Operations Officer until her retirement. She continued as an Independent Contractor providing disguise training overseas. Before working for the CIA, Ms. Ross was married to an Air Force Officer and raised two children. She graduated from the Dayton Art Institute, and earned her Art K-12 teaching license at Dana College, Blair, Nebraska. She practiced as an art teacher and artist in Omaha Nebraska, exhibiting her paintings at galleries. After her divorce her life completely took a new direction. She continued to pursue art at the University of London, Institute of Education, and returned to Virginia to continue in a variety of art education programs until her employment with the CIA. Coincidental to her career in clandestine activities, she pursued metaphysical studies, under teachers in England, Canada, Pennsylvania, and Virginia and lived in a spiritual community outside of Washington DC. She is a poet, writer, painter, and gives lectures on esoteric color. She has traveled extensively throughout eighty plus countries, and has been an occult student of the South American Andean traditions. A second book will soon be published, “Peruvian Odyssey”, a two month journey through the Peruvian Andes. A third book is in progress. She has a unique perspective on life, and her life in the Central Intelligence Agency has been an effort to put her spiritual values into an area not usually influenced by these ideals.
