Janice A Mrkonjic – Director of Membership

I direct traffic at the intersection of education, workforce and economic development. Recognized as a masterful communicator, connector, and critical thinker who is quick to lead and earn trust with navigating change and barriers to identify and cultivate solutions through relationships and resources.

Diverse abilities, experiences and interests led me to flex my entrepreneurial spirit by establishing a home-based business, Savvy Event Designs LLC, a destination management company. After 5 years an adventurous transition to higher education began with Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business followed by Arizona State University, Maricopa Community Colleges, and most recently, Mt. San Jacinto College. I am a driving force bridging gaps between education, workplace, and economic development initiatives.

Holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in education from Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax NS and is a certified Project Management Professional. Theoretical leadership, management, and business programs were completed at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, Harvard Business School Online, and University of South Florida Muma College of Business.

A fireball of high energy and optimism, based in Temecula CA, I enjoy supporting the local economy, driving to coastal beaches, and all the joys that life offers even the occasional curve ball.

I hold a Master of Science Degree in information systems management, and I am currently working on several projects under the Iboto Empire.
