EDUCATION: As a graduate from Arizona State University, Janelle earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Broadcast Journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications as well as a Bachelor’s of Arts in Communications from the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication.
EXPERIENCE: While going to ASU, Janelle had the opportunity of gaining knowledge and experience as an intern at three of the local TV Stations in Phoenix. She also was an active part of the Cronkite News Service on Campus. But ever since Janelle was in sixth grade, she knew that she wanted to pursue broadcasting and be an on-air TV journalist.
INTERESTS: Janelle has always enjoyed challenges like moving away from home, as well as traveling. She had the chance to travel to the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, and France during the summer of 2010 and one of her favorite parts of her trip was getting to tour the BBC. Janelle also enjoys taking a load off and spending the day on her couch in her pajamas when her busy schedule allows her to do so. And above all else Janelle is a food enthusiast and loves to eat.
Janelle would not be where she is today without the support of her loving family. They have taught her the strength and provided her with all the courage that a young journalist needs.
