Through her passion for painting and drawing while in school, Janette learned how art could inspire and generate joy in individuals from all walks of life. Janette soon realized she had another passion- understanding people and learning about what makes each person tick, leading her to focus her studies in forensic psychology. Being a frequent visitor in the Family Court system gave Janette special insight to the many injustices children and families face on a daily basis and gave her the push to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in forensic psychology and to eventually earn her PhD.

“Passion manifests from the heart and is guided by practice and will. As a child and adult I have always had a propensity to help others and have gravitated towards individuals in need, whether professionally or as a human being.”
