Janae – Patient Care Coordinator 

Janae was born in Whittier, California, and moved to Bellingham when she was 5 years old with her 4 other siblings and mom, and has lived her ever since. She is the second oldest out of 8 siblings with a age range from 25-2 years old. She has two dogs (that she considers them her kids) Loki and Molly, Loki is a 6 year old boy Pit Bull and Molly is a 3 year old girl Pit Bull. She has had both since they were about a month old. She loves taking the dogs running and swimming as much as she can. VERY family oriented, when she is not with her family she is with her in-laws. She has 4 nieces and 3 nephews’ ages 9 years old to 5 months. The thing she loves most about working in our clinic is getting to spend a lot of time getting to know the patients and what she needs to know to help them as much as she can. She loves getting to know their families, getting to tell those stories, and finding new places to go.
