Executive Director, Cancer Care Connection

Janet is the Executive Director of Cancer Care Connection, an affiliate of JFS Delaware. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of oncology experience. Prior to joining Cancer Care Connection, Janet attended Bryn Mawr’s Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. She attended graduate school as part of her transition from a corporate career at Fortune 100 companies; her experience during the early years of her career provided background in finance, sales, administration and customer service – all of which serves her well in her current position. Janet joined Cancer Care Connection in 2000 and was involved every step of the way in bringing the newly formed organization to life.

Janet is passionate about inspiring and motivating others to achieve their best possible outcome, particularly as it relates to their health and wellbeing. Her work is informed through her study of mind body medicine, behavior change models and neuroscience. She has presented at national conferences, provided self-care trainings for health care professionals and corporate and nonprofit employees, and individually coached many colleagues in her role as Executive Director.

Janet loves working and playing! In her spare time, she enjoys training and performing in ballroom dancing, working with a personal trainer, traveling (especially to France), cooking healthy and sometimes decadent meals, reading fiction and nonfiction, watching addictive series on Netflix and Amazon Prime, having FUN and especially spending time with her family and friends.
