Jan’s first career had more than two decades of success in marketing, communications and public relations. As an entrepeneur, she owned an accredited advertising agency and produced both television shows and international events. In 1997, Jan was elected Co-President of Canadian Business for Social Responsibility. Her integrity as a successful business owner, working with some of Canada’s largest corporations, earned Jan a prestrigious nomination by BCTel, for an Ethics in Action Award, in 1999.
These achievements all came to pass while experiencing life-changing health challenges that would have incapacitated or limited most people from similar career pursuits. Instead, these challenges prompted Jan’s second career in 2001 to become a successful health coach, inspirational speaker and published author. As a result, she has made a positive and dramatic impact on the lives of hundreds of individuals.
Jan’s life story was selected as one of 26 inspirational authors from around the world to be profiled in a book “Life Choices: Pursuing Your Passion“, launched in Las Vegas in 2010. This publishing introduced her to the world as a ‘medical pioneer’ and her keynote topic in Nevada- Health: By Choice or By Chance attracted many to request her support & research for their personal health or that of a loved one.
If you would welcome support with regards to Nutrition & Weight Management, Disease Prevention, Stress and/or Pain Reduction, please contact Jan to schedule your complimentary introductory session. If creating Work/Life Balance is something you deeply need, be sure to speak with her about that too.
