JGH&W is a health and wellness brand that provides resources and education to improve your physical, mental and financial well-being.
Created by Janice M. Woerner, Occupational Therapist, Yoga Instructor, single mom, singer/performer, author and Keynote Speaker.
The inspiration for JGH&W.com came from a blog that Janice Woerner wrote in 2010 when first diagnosed with breast cancer.

This website was inspired by Janice’s cancer journey, which began in 2010 when she was first diagnosed with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ). In addition, she was told she would be unable to conceive a child. One year later, her daughter was conceived naturally crediting restorative yoga in helping her body heal. In 2015, the cancer had returned, and Janice underwent a bilateral mastectomy. During the reconstruction process, she suffered an infection in her tissue expanders that required additional reconstructive surgeries. After two sets of implants, she made the brave decision to have explant surgery and now advocates for patients suffering from breast implant illness.
What is an Occupational Therapist? An Occupational Therapist’s education is based in areas of anatomy, kinesiology, neuroscience and developmental psychology, just to name a few. This knowledge base parlays into our training to focus on goal-setting, problem-solving and client-centered interventions in order to help you attain your highest level of independence and functioning. “Wellness” is defined by YOU, the client!
