Originally from Belgium, Janelle majored in Sinology and after a one-year exchange with Yangzhou University, she knew she never wanted to leave this amazing country. After finishing her Master's Degree in Business Management at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, she decided to move to Shanghai and she has now been resident here for eight years.
Eight years in Shanghai and plenty of life experience later, Janelle worked for multiple companies in the FMCG industry before joining BISS. Janelle loves the social aspect of working with international families from different backgrounds and helping them through the entire emotional process of relocating and finding the right school for their children.
Janelle is very passionate about learning Muay Thai – currently still undefeated, with one amateur fight under her belt. She has a passion for travelling and is multilingual - she loves learning new languages. In her spare time, she is on the board of two community groups which bring families and people together: The VLIS, a Belgian volunteer organisation in Shanghai and the DBYP or Dutch-Belgian Young Professionals.
