Today’s guest, defines herself as “a mother of three and a citizen of the world”. Born and raised in in a northern California Hamlett and removed from big city influences, she sought broader horizons and went on to graduate from Stanford University with a master’s degree in internal policy studies and a bachelors in international relations from Principia College.

She is conversant in 5 languages, served as a United States CIA officer and served in war-torn areas of Iraq and the middle east, and working with the US Marines.

One of the earliest childhood memories was wanting to become a “mommy”, and a mommy she has become but on a much larger scale. You see, Janessa’s inspiration came from witnessing the horrific sight of children’s toys and shoes jumbled amidst skeletal remains of mass graves. This led her to founding an international peace organization called Euphrates International.

Please listen to this heartfelt story. Join me in welcoming Janessa to the show.
