Janaya Kerben

Family Advocate

I’ve always had a passion to give back and be a part of a greater cause. As someone who truly values giving, I have come to realize the importance of opening up one’s heart early on.

Both of my parents were always active in community affairs and did everything possible to help another person. I remember growing up that my favorite part of school was when we had school trips to the nursing homes and hospitals to cheer up patients who were alone, sick, or had no one to visit them. I remember the feeling I had when I would spend time with patients, sick kids, and elderly people, and how happy and amazing I felt. Even though I was making them happy, I remember that feeling of pleasure I had when they would smile.

To give of your time and resources is something that truly inspires me. I have always lived for giving and continue to do so. As a recently admitted attorney, I have a passion to advocate for all people, but even more so, I have a strong passion to advocate for people that truly can’t do so on their own.

I have a Bachelor’s in Science in Management/Marketing, an MBA in Healthcare Administration, and a JD from Touro College. Although my educational part is extensive, my real “joi de vivre” is to help people.

I feel blessed to be part of this unbelievable cause and hope that with my education, love, passion, and dedication to bringing happiness to others. My role as Family Advocate/Liaison for Smiles Through Cars will help make a big impact on the lives of families, kids, and teens battling cancer.
