About Me


My mission is to learn and keep on learning! I want to better myself as a person and be a positive influence in other people's lives :) Every little bit counts!


Hello hello! My name is Jan and I am currently completing a teaching credential program. I love living in Sonoma County and am looking to branch out to the east bay. I enjoy food, art, nature, and live music and performances! When I travel, I would like to see/feel what the locals like.
I would be happy to show you around Sonoma County!
