I Can Truthfully Say; I Did That Thing!!!
Hi, I'm Janette!
I am extremely passionate about all of the projects I’ve worked on, and my hope is that this passion shines through my work. Please take a look at some of my past projects below to get a sense of what I can do.
Janette is an ordained elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church and currently serves as an associate minister at Allen Chapel AME Church in Omaha, Nebraska.
As an accomplished playwright, director and producer Janette’s first stage production titled Sistah Girl debuted in 2002. The stage production received rave reviews that led to its eagerly awaited presentation for two years afterward. Its follow up, Sistah Girl Revisited debuted in 2005. Then as a tribute to a beloved deceased cast member, Sistah Girl Now & Again was produced in 2008 at the Witherspoon Concert Hall (Joslyn Art Museum).
In line with her writing ability, Janette’s first literary project was birthed in 2012 titled Cloudy Witness. Its long-awaited sequel is titled Finding A Happy Medium now available on Amazon, also online at Barnes & Nobles. Any questions lacking answers in Cloudy Witness are skillfully remedied well beyond speculation in this rewarding sequel.
Janette was a featured personality in the Emmy Award-winning 2009 documentary, ‘An Inaugural Ride to Freedom: The Legacy of a People, a Movement, and a Mission,’ an Omowale Akintunde film. The documentary was a depiction of a cross-country bus trip made by college students, and members of the Omaha community to the inauguration of then President Barak Obama. Still, later in 2010, Janette was later cast in Omawale’s 2010 film ‘Wigger’ featuring Anna Marie Horsford, and Meshach Taylor.
Janette love for floral designing culminated in a home based business. Make My Day Floral Creations/Event Planner founded over twenty some years ago with event planning, fashion show production, floral designing becoming yet another major part of a highly acclaimed repertoire. Janette’s bridal floral designs have been commissioned from clients as far away as Chicago, Arizona, Texas, California, as well as Georgia.
As a prior military family, Janette and Jerry, her husband of forty-eight years, both native North Carolinians, traveled extensively to such places as Germany, France, England, Greece and the like. They are the proud parents of two adult sons and one daughter and proud grandparents of three grandkids.
