About Janet
A native of Michigan, Janet earned a B.S. in Liberal Arts from Aquinas College and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Western Michigan University. She worked as a social worker for eight years in Grand Rapids before earning her master’s degree and beginning a 12-year career as a psychotherapist. Throughout those twenty years, Janet derived a large part of her satisfaction from the extensive personal, family, and psychosocial reports and interviews completed with clients. 

A history buff, she embarked on writing historical features for local organizations and publications to honor not only the past, but her need to write. In 2012, Janet launched her full-time writing career with a focus on corporate and personal histories. 

She's a member of the Association of Personal Historians, the Chelsea Area Historical Society, Historical Society of Michigan,  and Michigan Women's Historical Center. She is also the co-leader of her daughter’s Girl Scout troop, and frequently volunteers at community events. Janet lives with her family in Chelsea, Michigan.
