Janet Fortener graduated with a bachelors degree in English from Ohio University and an associates degree in American Sign Language Education and Interpreting from Columbus State Community College in 2013. Upon graduating, Janet worked closely with nonprofit associations serving underprivileged minority populations, specifically the Deaf community. Janet now works as a high level executive assistant and saw A Change for Change as a great opportunity to get back to serving those in need. Janet was inspired by Kiley Thomas’s first trip to India where A Chance for Change was born. She donated personally to the cause from it’s inception and is dedicated to growing the organization and increasing fundraising to help better serve the community.
