CHICAGO, USA // Janet owes her career in DTC and pharmaceutical advertising to hot dogs and lunch meat. After 5 years of consumer advertising in this category, she knew she wanted to work on something...meatier.

Janet found her calling in health and wellness advertising. With over 25 years of experience, including 19 years at AbelsonTaylor, she has worked on over 18 therapeutic categories. Janet loves finding the compelling story that can create powerful, memorable, and emotional communications for her clients...and inspiring others to do so.

Janet has won numerous creative awards for her work, including Global, Creativity International, MM&M, Rx Club, Manny, PM 360, Doctors’ Choice, and Mobius. She is particularly proud of the Power of One campaign she worked on for Ronald McDonald House of Chicagoland and NW Indiana, which was voted Best Philanthropic Campaign by Med Ad News in 2017.

Janet has a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Missouri. Outside of work, she focuses on passing on her love of puns to her daughters.
