Hello! I’m Cheryl Janis and I teach health and wellness professionals how to transform their businesses into nurturing and safe spaces that increase revenue.
I help you create an environment that clients, patients, and your team love using holistic and evidence-based design.
But really? I’m a cat with many lives.
When I was 17 years old I almost died in a car accident. At 27, I crashed into a grandma cow at midnight in Brazil, which left me in the hands of a neurologist who couldn’t speak a word of English.
And at 41, I was a car sandwich for lunch while stopped at a stoplight minding my own business.
I’m now two glorious years shy of hitting the half-century mark [accident-free for the last seven] and with all four hands and feet intact [Yes indeed, my Guardian Angel is watching over me].
My brother [the dentist] likes to joke that I’m a cat with many lives.
And he’s right.
This cat knows what it’s like to be a patient in pain. A patient who is a master at waiting for her name to be called in for a doctor’s appointment.
And a woman who has plenty of experience [13.5 years to be exact] designing all manner of health and wellness settings for a living.
I’m like the User Experience designer in the tech industry–the person who is hired to make software friendly, easy and fun to use for the end consumer. The kind of person who gets into the details of the design to make it the best it can be, and who also makes sure all the parts work together as a magical, relaxing, supporting whole.
I act as a design consultant to all kinds of health and wellness businesses. I help you design exam and waiting rooms, treatment rooms, practitioner and physician offices, entire facilities and clinics, staff kitchens and lounges, and other healing spaces that make patients and clients, their families and teams feel deeply nurtured and safe. All this while growing your bottom line and increasing your professional aesthetic.
