Founder & President of
International Celebrity Images

A North Dakota native, Janna earned a BS Degree in Music Education from Moorhead State University in Minnesota. After several rewarding years of teaching music in North Dakota Janna decided to heed her call to move west to California in 1984 to join her sister Alana at Entertainment Express.

Janna brought a much needed talent to Entertainment Express. Her sense of organizational skills and creative insight have helped to guide Entertainment Express to its level of current success.

Nancy Casey, an Elizabeth Taylor look-alike approached Janna about getting more involved in the celebrity lookalike business and told her the entertainers needed an honest and dedicated agent to represent them for various engagements such as private parties, TV appearances, movies and print media. A celebrity fan herself and TV aficionado, Janna decided to accept the challenge and has formed the world's largest celebrity lookalike business with over two thousand professionals available for hire.

The Reel Awards is also one of Janna's creations. She and Alana are the co-founders of the most popular awards show in the celebrity tribute business,featuring an annual awards show that has risen to notoriety.
