Hi, I’m Janae.

I teach people how to maximize their strengths, integrate ideas into actions, and enjoy success through intentional, intuitive living.

Let’s Get Started!

How I went from being an “empath pleaser” to feeling confident in my roles as a mother, entrepreneur, and community leader.

It took me until I was about forty years old to realize I spent most of my time doing what others wanted. Giving others what they want isn’t bad, but I didn’t value my opinion as much as I valued others without realizing it. I wasn’t taught to ignore what I wanted; it is simply an outcome of being sensitive to others and knowing what they want. And because I am a “yellow” and love seeing others happy, it is easy to set aside my desires.


By the time I was twenty-two, I was married, given birth to two children, began to mother my step-daughter, the state gave me custody of our niece, we lost our landscaping business after my husband, Jon received a miss-filled prescription, we were in four different court cases. Through these experiences, we gained a great appreciation of community and the resources we needed to survive for a few years. Through people and services, we made it through this challenging time. Most definitely, our lives have been fast and furious, full of excitement, challenges, wins, and losses.


Now we have six daughters, one adopted son, and four grandkids. Our family is the reason Jon and I do everything we do. I love seeing each of my kids develop and find their passions in life. They each have unique strengths, and I have learned so much from them.

We purchased RBM building maintenance in 2004, and it is now the largest family-owned building maintenance company in the Intermountain West. It has tracked 20% growth every year, and in 2020, RBM was ranked in the Inc 5004 91% growth rate over a three-year period of time.


People often complain about aging, but with the wrinkles and physical changes come a different perspective on life. Hopefully, we learn which things are worth getting frustrated and angry about and save our energy for things we can control, like ourselves. We realize that time goes way faster than we want, and we can either jump into each day with a renewed passion or find ways to numb out and let the days slide by. 


I have experienced both of these perspectives, and I believe this is normal. I have become increasingly interested in the idea of choice and free agency. I wanted to understand how to use my energy to choose instead of letting life decide for me, and I began absorbing everything I could. When I was forty, I returned to school and received my degree in Integrated Studies, studying Leadership and Psychology. I graduated in the fall of 2019, and started a Master’s program in Intuitive Living in Spring of 2020, and started a Master’s program in Performance Psychology in the fall. In December, I certified as a StrengthsFinder coach, and in February, I started my certification as a NeuroLeadership Brain-Based coach. 


As I have been focusing on my family, my education, supporting our family business, I have realized that I am not alone in what I have been experiencing. It is easier for us to see strengths in others than in ourselves. We look around and compare ourselves, deciding that we are not as qualified as others. We set goals and let them go, feeling frustrated and like we don’t even have a choice. I get it, I have been there


During 2020, I watched the world, including our own family, struggle with all of the changes. Businesses, including our own, were threatened, mental health quickly declined, and the stress of homeschooling, rising debt, and isolation had an enormous toll on everyone. A lot of people also experienced more togetherness with their families and grew closer. I gained further clarity about what is important to me and how I use my time, but the fallout left many of us spinning. 


I used to think you should do community service when you were successful, but I soon realized you find success by serving in the community. For many years now, I have been a family advocate and a community organizer. I have been the chair of United Way of Utah County, I’m currently the Chair of the Utah County Chamber of Commerce, and I have served (and currently serving) on other boards. I only say this to express my deep desire to give back to the people and systems who gave to me. 

Although I will not finish my Masters until the end of this year, I have the experience and tools to begin giving back now. I started a business called Humans Driving Change to offer curriculum, training, coaching, and tools. I am hopeful that as I help others recognize their strengths, they will find greater self-confidence and joy.


I believe that every person is unique and has innate strengths that define who they are. My goal is to help others identify and understand these strengths. This mission might sound simple, but I am often shocked by how hard it is for people (of every age) to name one strength they possess. When people know what qualities make them resilient, they are more likely to thrive in their various roles.

I have seen people transform their lives through understanding what makes them unique and developing their voice to change the world around them. My passion is to maximize the potentials I see in others, which is what led me to coach. I do not have all of the answers for you, but I am very good at recognizing your strengths and using my training to help you create the life you want to live.


Yes, I’m ready to Transform my Goals into Reality!
