Janyse was the Narrator of the Emmy award-winning series Adoption Stories (Discovery Health) but it was her voice work on the hit animated series Ed, Edd n Eddy (Cartoon Network) that impacted her the most. Several children made their “one wish” through the Make-A-Wish® Foundation to meet the cast and crew. This made such an impact on Janyse that she was inspired to create The Magic of Think® to help children develop strength and courage.
Through it all Janyse fought an auto-immune disease triggered by a car accident, and was told to quit her career because she could end up in a wheelchair. She refused to believe this and has spent years studying health and the power of thoughts. You will hear the influences within her music.
Janyse grew up in Kelowna, British Columbia, and by the age of four, her dream was to sing, act and dance. At the age of five, she began training with the Canadian School of Ballet for eleven years. She studied piano for six years with the Royal Conservatory of Music and wrote her first song at the age of nine. She danced professionally in jazz ballet, street and ballroom. Janyse studied acting with the renowned coach Ivana Chubbuck.
