Mentor Spotlight – Janet


Janet has been a mentor with Childbirth Connection Foundation since November of 2008.  This is Janet’s first time mentoring, and although she has no children of her own she loves spending time with kids.  Since November, she has been meeting monthly with Laura, a sweet, soft-spoken 11 year old.    Janet has taken Laura on outings to museums, the theater and music concerts as well as trips to the park and other free community activities.

She gave Laura an art set and they have enjoyed painting together on their outings to the park.  An interior designer with a love of the arts, Janet hopes to instill in Laura an appreciation for the arts by “exposing her to cultural experiences”.  Janet helps Laura to observe and comment on art and the world around us.  She says that Laura has shown a great deal of enthusiasm and real willingness to learn.  Janet stated “it has been very satisfying and worthwhile as our relationship grows.”  Additionally, Janet states “it is a real pleasure to spend time with Laura.”
