Janette is a native Houstonian. She grew up in Southwest Houston and graduated from Houston Baptist University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing. She moved to Birmingham, Alabama where she worked as a bedside nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Janette’s interest in patient and family-centered care was a natural fit, leading her to become involved in bereavement care. Janette returned to Houston and took a break from nursing in order to start a family. She has two beautiful children, Lucy and Joshua. When her kids entered school, Janette began her journey back into fitness through kickboxing and jiu-jitsu, eventually discovering yoga. Inspired by her fitness instructors, she completed the Yoga Teacher Training at Awakened Yoga Studio in Spring 2017. Janette’s interests outside of yoga and jiu-jitsu are creating vegetable-based smoothies, learning other forms of martial arts (Eskrima and Jeet Kune Do), promoting women’s self defense, and painting with acrylics.
