Born at the coast, raised in the Upstate, and establishing her career in the Midlands, Jan completed her Master of Science degree in Exercise Science at the University of South Carolina-Columbia. She is a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
A four-season athlete most of her life, Jan has always loved to move. Being one of the first to be picked in sports also brought sincere compassion for those who were overlooked or had no interest in sports. Later learning the devastations of chronic disease and realizing that one of the most simple preventions of chronic disease is movement, Jan determined to dedicate her life to encouraging and teaching people how to move with enjoyment and reasonableness.
