Jan Mendenhall

Despite leading a busy life as a mother, volunteer Jan Mendenhall made the time to serve as a volunteer advocate. Her experience with her own children helped her in being able to gain children’s trust easily and form close bonds. In just a year and a half, Jan served 13 children, doing everything from arranging medical care to creating a relationship with the children’s teachers. She also brought her experience as a mother to the table when helping parents adjust to their new family plan. Jan is described by Advocacy Coordinator Barbra Denniston as phenomenal and an excellent volunteer.

 

Jan was our Rookie of the Year in 2012.
