Jan’s journey began many years ago, as a nurse’s aide and then a nurse-because she just didn’t want to care for people but wanted to know the reason she was doing certain things and why they got the medication they did.
As most care-givers may have aches and pains, Jan had migraines and in her journey for relief she received massages. She loved the massages and was inspired to become a massage therapist. During her training as a massage therapist she learned reflexology and became passionate about feet, so the journey with reflexology began.
She started with a weekend course with Barb Bower, and her fascination grew. She has taken courses from many different wise, caring and loving individuals on her journey and plans to continue on this journey of learning. She trained with The Healing Center, owned by Charlotte Irwin, took a workshop presented by Dr. Manzanares and became Nationally Certified by ARCB in 2005.
She went to her first Reflexology Conference in Portland, Maine in 2008. Jan loves meeting and collaborating with other reflexologists from all over the world.
She has taken classes with Bill Flocco (his Intensive Reflexology course), Dr. Maurtine Foure-Alderson, Sue Ricks, Geraldine Villeneuve, Sally Kay, Jenni Tribe and Sam Balyea.
She is our RAA Delegate and now has a voice serving on the NCRE (National Council for Reflexology Educators).
Jan loves to travel and does that as much as she can!
