    THE HIDDEN PHILANTHROPIST talks to JANA PITTMAN

    Jana’s achievements are well documented and her public and private highs and lows have been played out in the media. It would be hard to find a more honest, authentic, driven and passionate person whose nurturing nature has seen her become a mother of six, and now a doctor. She uses her reputation and her name as a platform for advocating for the topics and issues that are traditionally taboo, and she acknowledges the realness of life. Our conversation was deeply inspiring, and so much fun.
