INTRODUCING Janée N. Burkhalter, Ph.D

Hi Everyone!

I recently met a truly extraordinary woman. I knew this right off when seeing her art. She had ordered some leather from me and then sent a photo of what she created. Her art is very earthy, ethnic and powerful.  So in her own words I introduce to you 
Janée N. Burkhalter, Ph.D

Marketer. Educator. Scholar. Strategist. Artist.
In a nutshell, RANDOM.
I spend most of my time working as a marketing professor -- teaching about different types of marketing and researching about entertainment and social media. I also volunteer at a new church, helping with their marketing and strategic planning.
I love to travel, listen to music and watch TV. 
Not only because it makes me better at my job, but also because they inspire me.
When I need a totally different outlet, I create wearable art.
The name of my line is GIFTALENT and is part of the company I have with my family, BAJCA LLC. The name GIFTALENT comes from my favorite quote: "Your talent is God's gift to you. What 
you do with it is your gift back to God." - Leo Buscaglia 
From bracelets to clutch bags,
 I find joy in each handmade treasure I design and hope my customers find the same.
Whether I am teaching, writing, volunteering or creating I always pray that, big or small, my work is in some way a blessing.

Now the art.

Janée N. Burkhalter, Ph.D.
Art to wear. Art to carry. Art to love.
