Meet your Wellness Coach

I’ve been practicing health promotion since 1994, in a variety of contexts that include outpatient orthopedics, acute rehabilitation, rural developing countries, fitness centers, and academics. I’m an advocate for primary prevention and for personal responsibility. I started Foothills Wellness to guide others in practicing good health with a focus on the body we live in, the planet we live on, and the people we live with.

“Janet presented on issues of health and wellness in addition to women’s reproductive health to a population of parents who are predominantly Spanish-speaking, immigrant, and from low education levels.  She presented on very culturally sensitive issues for the Latino community with great care and attention.  Her information was relevant, up-to-date, and delivered in a very clear and interactive format.  The topics brought up important discussions that were eye-opening and therapeutic for the parents.  100% of the attendees surveyed found the information ‘very useful’ and presented ‘very well’!” Shana Sanchez, Deputy Director- Our Neighborhood Homework House
