I am Janessa Simonson, I am the Program Manager at Jan Shaw Home for Girls. I have worked with teens for a little over 5 years and was a Pre-school teacher prior to starting as a youth counselor in 2012. I graduated in 2012 with Associate of Arts Degree in Mental Health Direct Care. I worked as youth counselor and home manager while I got my second degree in Medical Administration. I absolutely love being a part of these young kid’s journeys as they grow and excel. I am also the mother to 2 beautiful girls, Brooklynn (8), and Layla (4). We love going for drives in the mountains, hiking, fishing, basketball, parks and swimming. I personally am a little eccentric and enjoy Astrology and I tend to day dream and joke a lot, it keeps me sane!
