Jana loves life, learning and a good adventure. She has four children who somehow keep getting older and older. Led by a deep drive for educating and growing whole humans she has homeschooled and hybrid schooled them for 16 + years. She joined Canyon Grove Academy after creating and running her own homeschool support that taught academics, character education, art, and the chinese martial arts in the Salt Lake valley for four years. Shortly after joining Canyon Grove Academy she helped create the Discovery program and has been running that and loving it ever since. She loves creating opportunities for personal growth and personal accountability through such a wide variety of experiences.

Jana earned a BFA from BYU back in the day. She is a RYT 200 registered yoga instructor and a student of the chinese martial arts. Her love of adventure has led her around the world enjoying various cultures and the great outdoors. With also enjoying photography, she has the pictures to prove it. But her favorite moments are when she is with all of her children in the same room talking about life, teasing each other and enjoying each other’s company.

She enthusiastically looks forward to continuing to learn and grow with the students.
