Janna was born and raised in the City of Hamilton, Ontario. In her early years, Janna successfully competed at provincial levels as a professional figure skater. After spending countless hours/years at the rink while maintaining top marks in school, Janna later attended such educational facilities as McMaster University (Business), Sheridan College (Marketing/Sales), OREA (Real Estate) among many other business and sales affiliated programs.
Janna began her early career in the Events Industry in the heart of Toronto, Ontario then moved on to assist in the growth and development of various Healthcare facilities in Ontario.
After those successful ventures, Janna moved on to the Retail Sector and utilized her acute business and marketing acumen to head up the Marketing Department at her Family's successful and International Retail Chain. Focus then shifted to the Hospitality Industry and Janna opened a full-service Marketing & Events business, a restaurant and a cafe before moving on to the sales side of Real Estate.
Q. What do you like to do on your spare time?
A. Realtors/Hockey Moms have spare time?
Q. What or who has been the biggest influence in your life?
A. No question, my Family. Everyone from my Husband & Son to my Parents, In-Laws, Brothers, Sister-In-Laws, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, Aunts & Uncles. I have a very large family network full of successful business-minded folk.
Q. What is the most challenging thing you’ve ever done?
A. To learn that you cannot please everyone, even though you want to. To be a realtor, you must have thick skin. It took me years to grow that and once I did, I was unstoppable in my mind.
Q. What kind of work did you do prior to real estate?
A. I’ve been fortunate to have had my hands in several adventures. I’ve worked in the Health Industry, the SPA industry, been a figure skating/power skating coach, been a Marketing Director for our Family’s international retail chain, worked in Toronto’s events industry, ran my own marketing & event planning company and have owned a restaurant & cafe. I have also dabbled in accounting, business consultation and interior design. Diversity in life is key. Learning and growing from successes and failures is an absolute must in order to drive forward. I’ve never shied away from growth and change and I do believe that in life, you are ALWAYS constantly learning.
Q. What business/career achievement are you most proud of?
A. I’ve been proud of each stage and opportunity given to me in my life’s journey thus far. It has shaped me into the person I am today.
