Janelle Smith began her work with Image Reborn as a retreat volunteer. Her expertise in the arts and passion for creativity led her to develop an art journaling based workshop encouraging healing through creative expression which was incorporated into the Image Reborn retreat program. It was through her involvement at the retreats that she recognized the transformative power of connecting with others as a support during difficult times and the positive impact that Image Reborn's mission has on the lives that it serves. This led her to become a board member where she could continue to devote her talents to supporting the growth of the foundation and maintaining the IRF mission. She currently serves on the UMOCA planning committee, is a dedicated mother to her 3 young children and works as a marketing consultant.
