“The College of Continuing Education at the University of Minnesota has worked with Janae for several years. She is able to take our course needs and ideas and transform them into successful seminars and workshops. Her approach and recent work on diversity and inclusiveness has been right on the mark. She has been able to adapt to both seminar attendees and onsite client audiences and needs.”
Linda Halliburton – Professional Development Department Director, University of Minnesota


“Thank you, Janae, for making a difference in so many women’s lives.  Your message is strong and clear… it is a message that everyone needs to hear.  We all have a story, we are all unique and we can leave a legacy. Your presentation made me laugh, cry and it touched my heart.  It is a great feeling to realize that I have “IT.”
Mary Riesgraf Hansen – Founding Director, Heritage Makers


“Thank you, Janae, for an excellent presentation at Bethel!  I have been thinking about (and sharing with others) the concepts that I learned. Your efforts have created lasting effects for the group and for those we connect with.  Thank you, you’re appreciated.”
Jim Benjamin – Associate Dean for Residence Life, Bethel University


“As an HR professional, I am continually looking for opportunities to expand my knowledge in the field.  After completing two courses in Performance Management and Diversity Janae taught, I found her knowledge and insights extremely valuable and practical to the work I do everyday.  When my own organization was looking for a consultant to lead our strategic planning process, I immediately thought of Janae and knew her skills and talents would help to maximize the results we needed from our group’s planning sessions.  Janae’s style of leadership and facilitation more than met our needs, and we were able to walk away with a concrete, well-developed plan that will help keep us on track as we continue to grow as an organization. Thank you for all of your help…you have been great to work with and to know!”
Jinah Chernivec – SPHR Director of Human Resources, Partners in Community Support


“Sharing our life stories connects us. Finding IT is an amazing story that crosses all generations. Janae’s gentle, inclusive style encourages meaningful dialogue and leaves a lasting impression on all participants. Valuing the importance of every day experiences and stretching to live out your dreams is a message that resonates with all audiences.”
