After a personal struggle with nurse burnout and talent acquisition challenges, Janna wanted to create an online labor marketplace connecting hospitals to nurses, on-demand.
After staffing dozens of healthcare organizations with nurses, two things really stood out to her: one, no matter how much tech we build, we still need more nurses! and two, we need more diverse nurses. Eighty percent of nurses are white.
Janna is on a journey to ensure that the diversity within the workforce directly mirrors the diversity of the patient population we care for every single day. She's doing this through my Future of Work/Future of Education platform, Provider Pool. She has led Provider Pool from idea stage to revenue generation in less than 6 months, securing investors, customers and top talent along the way.
Aside from entrepreneurship, Janna teaches clinical skills to Practical Nursing students, paints acrylic portraits and sings/plays keyboard in a band. She also loves Samurai culture.
Janna's motto: “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it!”
