Dr. Janelle has been an incredible support to me as I am working to achieve my goals. She is a kind, attentive listener as well as an agile, comprehensive coach. She has provided me with great templates and tools that allow me to take control of my future and that help me put all things into perspective.
My coaching sessions with Dr. Janelle were just what I needed to get unstuck and move forward during a period of transition in my life. She helped me identify the things that were getting in my way, strategies to overcome them, and create an action plan. I felt encouraged, heard and celebrated as I transformed fear and took steps forward, shifting my perspective to see opportunities as they arise. I appreciated her support and guidance to get clear on my larger vision, ultimately reconnecting me with my inner advocate and truth.
Janelle Ellis-Holloway is a Positive Psychology Practitioner for my 501(c)3 Non Profit, The Wakaboomee Adventure Traveling Education Program. As a former Science teacher, Janelle is passionate about providing youth with the tools to be leaders academically but she also recognizes how important it is to have the tools to emotionally function in a sometimes overwhelming world. Using Positive Psychology, interactive open discussion and role play Janelle is able to empower Wakaboomers and equip them with the techniques to articulate their feelings in a respectful and concise demeanor. She helps Wakaboomers have the confidence needed to stand up for their opinions, their morality and values amidst persecution and taunting. Without Janelle, I could not provide the full scope of my vision for The Wakaboomee Program. When I created The Wakaboomee Program, my goal was to provide children with the tools to be well rounded, who can function in an ever changing technological and emotional world – mindfulness and positive psychology are critical to that overall achievement. I am tremendously thankful to Janelle for her invaluable continued contributions to my 501(c)3 in our united efforts to impact the lives of children one child at a time.
Janelle takes my breath away. Truly beautiful on the inside and out. She knows her craft and she expresses it effortlessly in a way in which children are curious and receptive to it. Her mild spirit allows her knowledge to reach children from all walks of life and backgrounds.
