Our Surgeons and Staff
A nurse with nearly 40 years of experience, Janie enjoys helping patients learn to manage their health. “Bariatrics is a great field to work in – I find that helping patients with their weight loss journey is very rewarding.”
As one of the MyNewSelf program nurses, Janie helps make sure that patients are prepared and ready for surgery and that they correctly follow all postoperative instruction for optimal recovery and ongoing success.
Janie has been a Des Peres Hospital employee since 2015. She had wanted to be a nurse from childhood and felt strongly that her nursing career would allow her to make valuable contributions to the lives of the people she served. She has extensive experience in clinic and office settings as well as on medical surgical inpatient floors.
