Jeanmarie Thorne-Spencer, BSN, RNC
Jeanmarie is a passionate senior staff nurse with 35 years’ experience in women’s health, the last seventeen of which have all been at Northwestern Medicine. Besides being a nurse, she is a mother of three active children who, with her husband, enjoy their time together at one of the many beaches in Northwest Indiana.
Taking on new challenges is a part of who Jeanmarie is. Her passion for women’s health makes her a perfect co-lead. She has been key in the development and successful implementation of the Woman to Woman program here at Northwestern Medicine. Believing that for a mentor to really be helpful, having a good understanding of what a woman is going to feel once she has been diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, she must walk in her shoes.
