Janetta served as the President of the Donahue Business Society (DBS) and volunteered as a Student Ambassador for Duquesne University. After completing her term as the Chair of the Academy of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy (AMCP) Membership Committee, Janetta became the Secretary of the Northeast Affiliate of AMCP. As the manager of the Pittsburgh Pharmacy Network (PPN), Janetta has a true passion for networking by bringing together students and working professionals from various career fields.

As a Russian-Armenian that continues to speak Russian with her Ukrainian-Russian husband and children, Janetta is fascinated with the global aspect of leadership. Janetta's parents came to America with nothing in the early 1990s, so she continues to challenge herself to broaden her reach and understanding of various ethnicities to serve as a better leader.

Janetta resides in Upper St. Clair with her husband and two children. She believes in breaking down barriers and exemplifying resilience through her career, schoolwork, and personal life.
