In the 1980s Jann realized she had a special gift of communicating with animals. She took animal communicator classes from Debbie McGillivray, Tera Thomas, Penelope Smith and Carol Gurney as well as classes in meditation, healing, clairvoyance, herbs and Reiki. (She is now a Reiki Master). She has been working with energies and talking to animals for more than 25 years.

She is an avid hiker and that has allowed her to speak with wild animals. These beautiful creatures are so different in their communications because they have not adapted to mankind but rather observed us. She also traveled to Kenya and spoke with many of those animals and talked with animals in the rainforest in Peru. She has hiked in many US national forests and spoken with North American wild animals. On a trip to Florida she swam and spoke with the manatees.

She has been quoted in Species Link magazine (currently transitioning to an online publication) and was a featured animal communicator on Floppy Cats. She donates readings to auctions sponsored by various rescue groups.
