Janice Peterson

CEO/FOUNDER​

A National Recording Artist on the Tate Music Group Record Label, she took a leap of faith in 2012 and resigned from the Houston Independent School District after 23 years of service to promote her album entitled, “God is Real”, and to form and launch a non-profit organization that she founded and named “eCINAJ”. Janice has served in various areas of the community including the church. She is commonly called, “Many Hats” because she does it all, and tops it off with a heart-warming smile. She’s a teacher, preacher, ordained pastor, intercessor, worship psalmist, an independent recording artist, songwriter, good character education mentor and life skills coach, an entrepreneur, philanthropist and an overall community servant. Janice has served as a volunteer mentor and life skills coach at the Mission of Yahweh (a transitional living facility for women and children) in May 2008 – October 2012. She served as the Minister of the Worship and Arts Department and functioned as an ordained pastor at Impact Kingdom Center Church – Houston, Texas under the leadership of Apostle G. Emerson Scott, Senior Pastor. Janice’s mission is to produce women and young girls of character and to help them realize their God-given potential. She is a motivator and an encourager. She helps women and young girls to confront and conquer fears stemming from low self-esteem that work to prevent most individuals from realizing their dreams. She served in an afterschool grant-funded program formed by the Harris County Department of Education called CASE (Cooperative for Afterschool Enrichment). During her tenure in the CASE AmeriCorps program she taught Space Science, Robotics, Forensic Science, and Entrepreneurship curriculums to students in Aldine ISD and Houston ISD schools. In particular, she taught and prepared students at Stehlik Intermediate for the Annual HP (Hewlitt Packard) Robotics Competition in 2015. Her students won 3rd place. Janice has worked with girls and single mothers in apartment communities located in Houston. The latest of her philanthropy work includes a project where she and a colleague launched a transitional enrichment pilot program in a Northeast Harris County low-income apartment community known as Haverstock Hills. There she coordinated character education and healthy self-esteem workshops for the women and girls. She continues to work with women and girls throughout the city of Houston.
