Jana started her career in psych approximately 20 years ago when she worked at the Eastern Oregon Adolescent Multi-Treatment Center. From there, Jana went to Nursing school and once she graduated knew that her one true calling was Psych. She was hired as a new grad at Blue Mountain Recovery Center, a 60 bed State Hospital in Pendleton, Oregon where she worked for 5 years as an RN on the floor eventually becoming the Nurse Manager for another 5 years. In 2014, the hospital was closed and tore down, shifting her career slightly. She then went to work at Eastern Oregon Correctional Institute for 4 years.

During the time Jana was at EOCI an RA from McNary Place also worked for her dad at Wildhorse. She told Jana’s Dad that she needed to apply for a position at Aspen Springs. Her first love has always been psych and this was a great opportunity for her to get back to what she loved to do. Jana was hired on as the Clinical Coordinator for Aspen Springs in December of 2017. Jana has always said, when you love what you do, work doesn’t feel like “work”. Jana says she loves what she gets to do every single day and joins the rest of Lifeways and the community in being excited for what Aspen Springs can do for the community
