Janet was born in Connecticut but lived most of her life in California. A mom of 4 children, she went to nursing school when they were older and earned her RN degree. She later became a Nurse Family Practitioner and after that taught Nursing at Biola University for over 17 years. As a woman who dedicated her professional career to caring for and treating people with health concerns, a significant part of her career was to educate others in health care.
