Janise clearly remembers the day she first saw an Elite Entertainer “in action.” This was back in 2000 when she began DJing as an assistant with us. “I knew I wanted to be a part of that magic” she says. “That sense of excitement you can share with the guests at a party, and the impact you make on someone’s celebration made me want to be involved in significant moments in people’s lives.” Then she smiles and adds, “and I don’t think it hurts that there’s a performer inside me that doesn’t shy away from entertaining a large audience.”
Indeed that “performer inside of her” is what makes Janise such a natural as a DJ. She has experience as a singer, dancer and actor, performing in various competitions and events throughout the country. For the past 15 years, she’s also had the honor of teaching tiny tots as a preschool teacher in Long Branch, putting her BA in Fine Arts/Theater and her Teachers Certification for Preschool-3rd grade, Elementary Education to good use. And in the Spring of 2016 she earned her Masters in Administration and Leadership (making her by far the most educated Elite Entertainer!)
Janise is also fluent in Spanish and can MC in either English or Spanish (and often both at the same event.) She’s been called upon to introduce bridal parties and/or make some announcements in Español.
To Janise the best part about DJing is, “to be a major part of someone’s special day; no matter what the celebration is. I love to spread my enthusiasm and my passion for a good party in order to turn an event into a special memory. Get me to a wedding or kid’s party, and I feel right at home.”
Janise is married to a “wonderful husband” Bob and in 2012 they welcomed their beautiful son into the world. She finished her interview by proclaiming “Life is good!” and we couldn’t agree more!
