Janice Bankert-Countryman was born and raised here in Indiana, and she raised her kids here, too! Janice likes to tell people that she is a high school dropout with a master’s degree. She did leave high school, and she then (eventually) completed her BA in Communication Studies and her MA in Applied Communication here at IUPUI. Janice is a Career Consultant for the Degree Completion Office and for the School of Liberal Arts. Janice also serves students as an associate faculty member in Communication Studies as well as Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Janice’s intention in all of her interactions with students is that at the ends of classes and meetings, students feel empowered to thrive.
Janice’s hobbies vary by season: When it is warm outside, she can be found in the garden. When it is cold outside, she is more than likely curled up with her dog Igor and either reading a book by Terry Pratchett or watching a scintillating mystery show. Regardless of the weather, Janice is probably working on at least one crochet project. Upbeat and enthusiastic, Janice looks forward to working with you!
