Janelle’s inherent desire to learn and her passion for all things well-being encompasses all aspects of her life. Whether it is self-improvement and how the brain works to understanding how something works, she is always reading or listening to something to discover the why’s and how’s. Janelle’s two cats, adopted from Butte Humane Society, are just as much a part of her family as any person. When not at work, she enjoys strength training, going on scenic walks, yoga and finding ways to practice mindfulness.
