AIE | The Idealist

Raised in a small Nebraska community, Jan began using her interests by playing the piano for the high school choir. After obtaining a degree in Music Education, she realized in her first year of teaching that it wasn’t right for her. Fortunately, after obtaining a Master’s Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling, she found an alternative career that was more fulfilling where she was able to work with individual clients. Building on this education and experience, she became specialized in vocational assessment and courtroom testimony as a vocational expert. Jan has owned a private practice Rehabilitation Counselors since 1978, which is a good match for her full CodeCombo – AIECSR.
