About Me

JaNessa Willis
JaNessa Willis

JaNessa was born in Lompoc, CA and has spent most of her life here in the golden state of California. JaNessa graduated from Fresno State University, receiving a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences and a B.A. in Psychology. JaNessa took an interest in nutrition at a young age after being exposed to the negative effects of poor diet quality and inadequate knowledge of health concerns, both within her family and community. It opened JaNessa’s eyes to the hardships that many people face regarding their health and lifestyle choices and also inspired JaNessa to help facilitate change within the community. This is why JaNessa loves doing what she does. Her personal motto is that, “If I can help change at least one person’s life for the better, through my knowledge of health and nutrition, I will feel accomplished.” A fun fact about JaNessa is that she is the daughter of the US Air Force. Her father served in the military for 17 years and because of the military background, her mother and she were able to live overseas in the United Kingdom (England to be exact) during JaNessa’s high school years (from 2005- 2009). While there, JaNessa was able to travel to 10 other countries. It was the experience of a lifetime!
