Janay loves having fun and making people happy. Her passion for throwing amazing parties makes her the perfect choice for special events co-chair. She is inspired to come together with other women to give a big amount to an organization in the Greater Sacramento area.
After growing up a farm girl in the small town of Los Banos, Janay moved to Sacramento to run a paging business and later branched out to retail. Her hustling nature helped her build a successful partnership with her husband Kurt in the restaurant and hospitality business. Now she’s turned her passion to real estate, helping Sacramento area families find their dream homes.
Janay and Kurt have two daughters – Abbigail attends Iona University in New York and Hannah attends Christian Brothers High School. She is also mom to two fur babies, Jack and Bella.
