Janice joined the Southern Plains Tribal Health Board in December 2014. Her job titles include administrative assistant, Caring Van coordinator, and currently, public health training coordinator for the grant-funded, A Comprehensive Approach to Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country– a diabetes, heart disease, and stroke-prevention program. Her outreach as a public health coordinator allows her to travel to American Indian communities throughout the state of Oklahoma. Her mission provides preventive health services and education for American Indian children and adults statewide. Traveling with the Caring Van has given her the ability to help families learn about the importance of health screenings and healthy lifestyles. This has led to a very rewarding career.
Before the Southern Plains Tribal Health Board, Janice worked for the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP) in administration for the National Program to Eliminate Diabetes-Related Health Disparities in American Indian Communities program. She has over 20 years of experience in administrative duties which include Oklahoma insurance licensure and licensing agent for the Oklahoma Insurance Department. Janice has lived in the Oklahoma City area all her life. She is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma and is also of Navajo descent.
