Her visionary leadership allows her to play a pivotal role on the educational team. “When you’re teaching in healthcare it’s evolving all the time,” explains Janelle. “I write a lot of educational content and sit on a number of committees, which helps me stay on top of best practices in healthcare and nursing. It’s challenging, but I love it. I love learning and in this job I’m learning every day.” Janelle is a geeky girl who enjoys movies, reading, listening to good music, kayaking, hiking, biking, and geocaching.
