Background and Certifications:
Jannick has 17 years of clinical experience promoting health and wellness for older adults living with challenges related to aging in such roles as Adult Day Program Supervisor and Recreation Coordinator. These roles have given her the abilities to; design and implement programs based on client needs and interests and identify and reduce/remove barriers to participation in healthy leisure and community activities.
Understanding that community connections remain important at any age, Jannick would invite community partners within nursing homes to ensure that residents still felt like they were able to be a part of their community.
