Hey, I’m Janet! I work with people who can’t figure out how to express themselves and their brand the best way. I turn drab into fab and give them the tools needed to present a professional and polished image once and for all. I’ve got… • A Bachelors in Art and 10+ years of Design and PR experience • Art included in over 50 national and international exhibitions. • Experience working with individuals and businesses in dozens of countries including: USA, Canada, Australia, India, Pakistan, Germany, and Singapore. • Articles published in numerous publications including; SISTERS Magazine and The Huffington Post. • A track record of writing winning grants with USD$20,000+ awarded to date! And when I’m not writing and designing I can be found taking cross-country road trips with my husband and daughter, or elbow deep in scraps of paper creating my one-of-a-kind art collages. Come play with me right this second by sending me a private message to discuss your project. Cheers! ~Janet~

Grant Writer/Program Co-Director

Apr 2010 - Jun 2011 (1 year)

Community Building Initiative Grant-Tiny Tales & Mommy Gatherings I co-wrote and was awarded a Community Building Initiative Grant to launch a public program called Tiny Tales and Mommy Gatherings. It was a monthly program funded in whole by the First Five Sacramento Commission. I worked closely with other organizers to create and present correlated topics, discussions and activities for both children and mothers on a variety of culturally specific and engaging literary subjects held inside the Elk Grove library. The program was designed to build communities and increase bi-lingual literacy in English and Arabic for ages 0-5 in the Elk Grove area. I co-wrote and edited lesson plans, led activities and story-times, organized events, facilitated parenting discussions, purchased supplies, tracked the budget, and filed reports with the First Five Sacramento Commission in a timely fashion. Due to our efforts and initiative the program was such a huge success and was partially adopted into the local Public Library curriculum. The turnout and success of the program also prompted the Public Library's acquisition of more bilingual books and other materials.

Grant Writer/Grant Awardee

Jan 2004 - Jun 2004 (5 months)

CSUS Foundation Project Activity Grant As President of the CSUS Art club in the spring of 2004 wrote and received a grant to address art marketing and exhibition issues that were lacking in regular curriculum. I planned and implemented hands-on activities and a guest lecture series that covered a variety of topics such as; conservation framing of artwork, 2-D and 3-D slide photography, building portfolios, manipulating digital images of artwork, and marketing. The program was a great success, due in part to there being no comparable classes offered in the regular CSU Sacramento curriculum that would assist students with bridging the gap between their student years and professional careers.
