Audiences Call Janette’s Talks “Life-Changing.”

Audiences love Janette’s talks because she speaks authentically from her personal experience and her conversations with countless clients, fellow patients and health care providers. As a former patient herself and a public health professional with a Masters from the Harvard School of Public Health, she is able to weave personal stories together with medical studies, perspectives from wisdom traditions, and interactive exercises into talks and workshops that challenge participants’ assumptions and inspire them to act.
