Jean was born in her parents' home in Lingard Road, Sutton Coldfield on 22nd August 1952, where she attended local schools, and Sutton Coldfield college before joining Birmingham Polytechnic. Jean is married to Mike Kelford and has three grown up children, "two daughters and one son," from her previous marriage and two step daughters from her present marriage. She is lucky enough to be blessed with grandchildren and she resides in the West Midlands, which is her base. However, she frequently travels the world, including the whole of the United Kingdom, Scotland, and Ireland alike, demonstrating as an internationally renowned Medium. \r\n
As such Jean teaches Spiritual development, as well as presenting communication from what appears to be another world. She is in constant demand to appear at Spiritualist Churches, book signings, and large Spiritual events everywhere, and is very highly regarded. Jean is proud to be a member of Sutton Coldfield Spiritualist Church, where she started her development, she therefore considers the Church to be like home.\r\n
Her life is dedicated to spreading the knowledge that our Spirit lives on, and that after we have left our physical body, we are still connected to one another by the bond of love, which is everlasting and therefore, can and does unite us forever. There is no death, only another state of being, which is assessable by Jean whenever the need arises. She feels that she has been given the ability because the higher powers intend for her to share it with others. She receives proof of survival, information, and guidance, but not instructions because the decision belongs with each individual, for which they have their own personal responsibility. Jean feels that her books will spread the word and help people to know when their loved ones are about.\r\n
Jean has been featured in numerous newspapers and Journals "including the Cosmopolitan," throughout the country. She regularly holds workshops, and teach at places like the Baker Foundation in Spain, and the Spiritualist Centre in Belfast. Another teaching tour has been arranged with venues in New York, Virginia, Nevada and California.
