In 2020, she founded OUTSIDE THE BOX, a virtual mental health & wellness series for Gen Z.

Comments & Testimonials

"My team recently brought in Janeane to facilitate our end-of-year meeting, with a focus on self-care and resilience (it's been a tough year for everyone!). She worked closely with several of the team members to understand our work and tailor her content to our team, and prepared a really engaging and interactive discussion that was fun, meaningful, and the perfect mix of content and conversation."
Hensley Evans Partner & Practice Area Lead, ZS Associates
"I had the privilege of introducing Janeane's fabulous book, "Get the Funk Out" at Book Passage late last year (before Covid) and thankfully it came in so handy when STP hit this past March. Her easy, empathetic, and engaging style kept the BP audience riveted with the Q&A going right up to closing time. The message of self-care resonated so much that as a professor at SFSU (teaching health courses), I invited her to spread her inspiring advice & practical tools with my students."
Cathy Rath Adjunct Professor, San Francisco State University
"We were so excited to have Janeane speak to our community of current students, alumni, and current and former faculty. The theme of her talk was centered around resilience and self-care in a time when it matters most. Her passion, kindness, and love for what she does and who she works with shines so bright and made this an unforgettable experience for our community."
Stephen Sheehan Director of Alumni Engagement, King School
"Janeane connects to an audience like they're lifelong friends, candidly and vulnerably sharing uplifting anecdotes, struggles and bounce-backs, and lessons learned from a lifetime of growth, change, and human connection. Likewise, she inspires her audience to laugh, share, and reflect on their own journeys, values, and goals."
Director of Field Study for the School of Social Ecology, UC Irvine
