Previously, Ms. Janke developed, implemented and managed a variety of programs across the treatment service continuum for both privately and publicly funded treatment and prevention agencies.  Working in both funding sectors provided an unparalleled opportunity to work with culturally and socio-economically diverse populations requiring a full spectrum of services.  In consultation with leading researchers, Ms. Janke gained extensive experience in the development, operation, and evaluation, of effective treatment programs, and continues to apply this knowledge as a sought after treatment improvement consultant.

Ms. Janke serves as project manager for all treatment-related projects.  She has worked with many State level administrators, and treatment center executives to develop “Comprehensive Treatment Centers”, capable of providing evidence-based practices for the entire continuum of care.  A ‘science to practice approach’ utilizing continuous quality improvement techniques is embraced, and Ms. Janke regularly uses these skills to help leading treatment centers assess their program structure, staffing, and effectiveness.  Ms. Janke has also directed treatment outcome evaluation studies that have documented significant improvements in levels of substance use and crime, and has used this information to help professionals understand how treatment affects their clients.

Ms. Janke received her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Rhode Island, and her Bachelor’s degree in Health Education from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
