Prior to joining Coaching Corps, Janet was Vice President of Futures Without Violence, formerly the Family Violence Prevention Fund, where she helped grow the organization from a local nonprofit to a national leader in policy, social norm change, and institutional reform aimed at ending family violence. She was recognized by the Annie E. Casey Foundation for her national leadership in developing interventions for kids exposed to the trauma of violence in the family. Janet has served as Chair of the Children and Families Leadership Development Fellowship National Network for four years. She lives in San Francisco and was raised in Birmingham, England, and Detroit.
