Upon moving from south Florida to Indiana in November of 2011, to help raise her grandchildren, Janice was not sure if she would be going to work immediately but did sign up with Kelly Services just in case. Three weeks after moving, Janice’s husband passed away so any work plans were put on hold for several months. On February 7, 2012, Janice received a call from Kelly Services about a position at Sports World Ministries as their Receptionist but was cautioned about accepting an offer as she was told that they prayed every morning before starting their day. Janice’s response was “Oh, I think I can handle that.” Janice interviewed and was offered the position on the spot and began working February 9, 2012. Janice felt the desire to open a small business and resigned her position at Sports World the end of March 2013. Due to the poor economy she closed her business in March of 2014 to go into senior caregiving which was very rewarding until her last  patient was put into a nursing home in November of 2014. After 7 months of being at home with the grandchildren, she stopped in at Sports World to visit and saw that there was no receptionist…she expressed her interest in coming back to work and was contacted in August about returning. She had come full circle and knew that God was returning her to where He had intended for her to be all along.

Prior to moving to Indiana, Janice lived in south Florida for 25 years, with the last 17 years spent working as the Executive Assistant to the President of the number one high-end luxury cruise line in the world. This position afforded her the opportunity to travel extensively around the world to places she had always dreamed of visiting.

Janice was born in Louisiana and lived there until 1987 when she moved to Florida. She has two adult children and two grandchildren that she devotes her life to and loves living across the street from her son and his family.

In her spare time, Janice is very active in her church, catering special events when asked, working with seniors and heading up her Bible study class as their social chairman planning activities for them each month. She loves to entertain friends and family in her home, her favorite TV programs are Food Network and HGTV as she loves trying new recipes and decorating her home. When the opportunity arises, she still loves to travel in the US and abroad. Her constant companion is Boots, her 40 pound Main Coon cat.
