Janeane Bernstein's Biography

Janeane Bernstein, EdD, is a journalist, speaker, author, and radio host.  As a speaker, she covers topics such as the power of resilience, self-care, the Science of Happiness, and the importance of prioritizing mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

She is the author of “Get the Funk Out, %^&* Happens, What to Do Next!” (2019), which was published by Post Hill Press and distributed by Simon & Schuster. The book focuses on the importance of creating resilience and strength through life’s curveballs, which has become increasingly relevant during the current mental health pandemic.

Janeane’s work includes radio/podcasting, communications, training and development, wellness, selfcare, and mentoring.  In 2021, Janeane created a custom designed online mentoring series to help high school and college students find internships and employment opportunities during the pandemic. She recently started the Better Humans Series: The CARE Initiative. CARE stands for Connection, Attention, Resilience, and Education, and is a social initiative designed to inspire others to create a more cohesive, compassionate, and empathetic society.  In 2020, Janeane launched online series Outside the Box, in response to the millions of people out of work, which provided expert advice on how to find work remotely and pivot to start a new venture.

She is a 2021 Age Boom Academy Fellow with the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center in partnership with Columbia Journalism. She earned a doctorate from Boston University in Curriculum and Teaching, with a focus on Educational Media and Technology, and studied at the S.I. Newhouse School of Communication and the School of Education at Syracuse University.

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
