Janeyry was born and raised in Salem by her two wonderful parents. She graduated from McKay High School and pursued her degree at Portland State University. Something she appreciates about Friends of the Children—Portland is its commitment to the youth and their families as well as how welcoming they are. What she enjoys doing outside of Friends of the Children is hanging out with her 7 year old sister and her dog. Janeyry also enjoys discovering new eating places and hidden hiking trails. All of these thing bring so much joy and energy into her life.
