Janelle Lamar
Founder and Lead Planner

I'm already short, and I try to be sweet. So let's go with bullet points, because who's really going to read this word-for-word, right?

 

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:

  • Wife of 17+ years to the most caring and thoughtful human, like, ever
  • Mom to rambunctious twin boys (one with special needs)
  • 11+ years of premarital mentoring experience (just call me a marriage advocate!!)
  • Volunteer with a local non-profit organization, Serenity's Steps

We become better people when we learn from the strengths and growth areas of our life partner. I share with my clients things I've learned over the years - this is the basis of my unique approach.
