Janice Krouskop Named Executive Director Of Scenic City Women’s Network

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Janice Krouskop has been named executive director of the Scenic City Women’s Network.

Having served on the SCWN board of directors from 2003 – 2006, Ms. Krouskop has a passion for marketplace ministry and the mission of SCWN to encourage, equip and energize today’s Christian working women. In her role as executive director she will direct all facets of the ministry and its programs.

Ms. Krouskop was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and educated at Mansfield State University (B.S.), The University of Texas School of Public Health at Houston (M.P.H.), Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in North Carolina, and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity).  Prior to this ministry role, she worked as a chaplain at Erlanger Health System providing pastoral care to patients, families and hospital staff. She started her professional life as a Home Economics teacher, and then worked for over 20 years as a Registered Dietitian, wellness consultant, speaker and writer, before discerning God calling her to vocational ministry.

Ms. Krouskop believes that Christian faith and biblical wisdom are important to our sense of purpose and meaning, as our work is connected to God’s work in the world.  The integration of faith and work is fundamental as women seek to balance the demands of work, family and personal life. She lives with husband, Andy on Signal Mountain. They have two married sons and a grandchild on the way.

Ms. Krouskop also serves on the board of directors of the faith-based organization, The Children’s Nutrition Program of Haiti. She is an advocate of CNP’s initiative for the empowerment of women in rural villages near Leogane, Haiti.
