Janelle Allen is a serial entrepreneur, writer and professionally trained online course and curriculum designer. She holds a Bachelors of Arts in English (Creative Writing) and a Masters of Science in Instructional Technology, from Georgia State University.
In 2012, Janelle quit her job as Senior Instructional Designer at Pearson Education to launch Learnwise, where she managed the development of online courses for corporations and universities alike.
