Top of my podcast list!

Janice is truly an inspiration for her advice, experience and expertise through all she has been through as well as her accomplishments. However, the thing that keeps you coming back to Janice’s podcast is her heart and teaching others to dig deep and find their authentic voice, to share their story, no matter how hard it hurts to finally find healing.
