Janna Pokluda Staff Photo   Janna comes to PH with years of experience in event planning and fundraising. Janna began managing events in 2002 as a musician through small and large scale events. Janna received her Bachelors in Teaching and taught Kindergarten and Second Grade for several years.  During that time she worked as a volunteer for the March of Dimes as a Family Team Captain and was brought in by the March of Dimes to share her story with Corporate Teams.  In feeling the call to be more of an advocate for the March of Dimes, Janna left her teaching job to pursue a career as the State March for Babies Coordinator.  Over the past several years Janna has used her strength in building relationships to help plan and run many other fundraising events for various Non-Profits, Music Festivals and Charitable Organizations.  She is also a member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Go Texan Committee where she plans and runs yearly events that raise money for the HLSR Scholarship Fund.
