Janett and her husband are the parents of 5 kids and 2 dogs. As an expression of her passion to ensure that all kids have an equal opportunity for higher learning and sports, she and her husband direct the Bay Area Lunaticz AAU Basketball Club. Along with their coaches they seek to serve kids from all ages, races, and genders in having an opportunity to grow and learn on and off the court. Ensuring that their education always came first before stepping on to the court she says, “Basketball is an outlet for these kids. Some are in survival mode, they just need to feel that they belong and be given an opportunity to be heard, mentored, and loved!” The first group of 9 kids to go through their program all went off to colleges throughout the Bay Area.
