Janet completed an M.Ed. in Counselor Education after becoming interested in counseling while doing community service teaching résumé writing, interviewing skills, and strategies for changing careers.
Janet completed a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology specializing in Counseling Psychology. She loved graduate school because there was so much emphasis on reading books and writing papers.
Janet was an early adopter of using technology (phone, webcam, email, and text) to assist coaching clients and she has written extensively about self-help while doing e-coaching for clients who wanted a written record of their work with her. She also published work/family advice in a local parenting magazine.
Janet wrote articles on career development while employed in Career Services at the University of Houston. She published a book about career choice and launched two blogs about career happiness, one of which was on the first page of Google for many years.
Janet loves to write content about education and learning. She is skilled at writing "how to" information for individual learners. She has a background in migrating educational content from print to online media and she describes herself as an enthusiastic fan of online learning.
Janet discovered she has a talent for writing blog posts when she created her own blogs. She can write blog posts that rank well in search engines but also sound natural when read by humans. Her blogs were used in marketing by two different companies to attract a steady stream of coaching clients who were pre-sold on services by reading the blog posts.
Janet writes articles for both print and online publications. She enjoys translating academic research into practical, easily understood strategies for busy readers to use to improve their work and personal lives. She is also skilled at writing stories about people's experiences with helpful products or services.
