She first appears in "Tongue-Tied", she and her fellow believers are waiting for Norma, Norma finally arrives in the chapel, Jeanie gasps and says "I told you! what did I tell you! Non-belivers, all of you! Nobody ever listens to me." Norma then does her "magic" on jeanie's forehead.
In "Where My Dreidel At" she is seen in the chapel, she looks very annoyed when Charismatic Catholics interrupt their session with Norma and fails to see it as a faith. Later on, Frieda is reading "Time Hump" aloud. Jeanie shouts "Hey, no spoilers!"
In "A Tittin' and a Hairin'" she is once again with the Norma-worshippers, they are taking turns shouting their thoughts In a circle, outside and Jeanie Shouts "I hate Papaya!". Later on, they are again outside shouting their thoughts, Gina shouts "One person here (Leanne) is very bossy and I am very annoyed by her" Leanne responds and Jeanie says "Am, I think we a'int supposed to respond.", after more comments about Leanne and a speech by Poussey, Jeanie shouts "Norma is my Jesus!", the group is later separated and giver work duty. Leanne and Soso have an argument and Soso says "We're just different, obviously." Jeanne is shocked by this and states "obviously? Oh that is just condescending" Soso responds by saying "Its hard to avoid condescension when you are a literally Bologne right now" followed by "you know what, maybe i am better than you, and i'm not apologizing", Jeanie looks shocked by this but, does not respond.
In "We Can Be Heroes", Angie is after getting out and Leanne tells a story about it in the session with the Norma-worshippers" everyone, including Jeanie shouts "Praise Norma!" Jeanie walks up to Norma with 2 snickers bars and says "here, i brought you these" and walks back to her seat with a smile on her face, Norma eats her bar that Jeanie gave her when Soso comes in the room stating "Norma, I'm being bullied by your group, I thought you should know that". Soso and Leanne argue again and Soso says "How could you let ths happen, I thought you were about kindness, I used to think you cared but you don't, and you let a bunch of crazies speak for you, congrats on nothing! and your all just some chicken-shit followers!" Jeanie is extremely offended by this comment.
In "Trust No Bitch" Leanne and Angie discover Norma's face in a slice of toast. Jeanie and fellow Norma Worshippers go over and see if it's true, Jeanie finally notices Norma's face and exclaims "Holy mother, its beautiful!"
