Janae’ leads with fierce advocacy, sincerity and directness. Our work at EOS centers on dismantling broken systems, challenging strong-held assumptions and values, and advocating for often unseen communities. Her approach to and implementation of this work has been incredible.

Janae’ has proven abilities to drive organizational mission while implementing creative solutions to challenges along the way.
