Bio: Janie works as a flight nurse for the University of Utah’s AirMed program currently, and as a Hospitalist Nurse Practitioner at Tosh caring for orthopedic patients and does expert witnessing in the arena of air medical transport. She has spent 36 years as a flight nurse both in Southern California and Utah. She has a Tennessee Walker horse who does equine therapy with traumatized youth and loves him as much as her husband (Don’t worry he knows!) She has four children and 10 grandchildren whom she also adores. She loves the outdoors, American history, classic rock, anything pink, her hair-do from the 80s and most sports. She developed an interest in compassionate care-giving early in her career as she witnessed practices that literally broke her heart. She is a frequent contributor to the AirMedical Journal as she works to engender the idea that compassion is an incredible strength that will not only help keep you out of a court room, but truly change lives. Some of her greatest influences are her dad, Abraham Lincoln and the late Fred Lee, author of “If Disney Ran Your Hospital: 9 ½ things you would do differently.”
