Janis is the owner and Principal Event Planner for Brocade Events.
In addition to holding certifications in wedding planning and destination wedding planning, Janis also has a diploma in Business Management from SAIT Polytechnic and has experience as a Manager in the corporate sector.
Janis works with The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada as a course instructor for the Toronto area WPIC Certification classes where she contributes to creating a more professional wedding industry.
She has had her work featured in Elegant Weddings, Today's Bride, Weddingbells and The Wedding Ring magazines, as well as many online features. She has been interviewed for articles by The Huffington Post, Toronto Star, and Wedding Trends Magazine.
Janis stays up to date on wedding trends, and continues to expand her knowledge and expertise by attending seminars, conferences, training courses, and networking with wedding and event industry experts,
She operates Brocade Events on a full-time basis, and not as a hobby business or side project.
She is a busy Mom, cappuccino addict, and wine lover who will never say no to a charcuterie board. She loves to stay active, and can be found at the gym rocking a TRX, HIIT, Anti-Gravity or Spin class.
Above all else, she loves people, and would have been a Psychologist if she wasn't such a lost soul in high school. The best part of her job is making her clients feel at ease and confident no matter the circumstances, their wack-a-doo family members, or whatever else that may be going on behind the scenes at their wedding or in their lives. Her couples put a lot of trust in her, and she never takes that for granted.
