Welcome to episode twenty-one of the Honest Mamas Podcast! Today, we speak to Janna Barkin about her book “He’s Always Been My Son.”
Janna and her husband Gabriel live and thrive in Marin County, California. Together they’ve raised three wonderful children, Travis, Emily and Amaya.
Janna was born in New York City and graduated from Binghamton University (SUNY) with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Social Sciences. She has worked as a preschool teacher/director and also as a certified childbirth educator, and she has over a decade’s experience teaching yoga. Her students include beginners, advanced practitioners, pre- and post-natal mothers, and people experiencing disability, grief, transition, pain, and loss.
Janna is a lifelong learner who loves experiencing new things and giving back to the community. She also volunteers her time and services for these causes:
Janna’s son Amaya is a very smart and motivated student, a well-liked and popular peer among his many friends, and a darn good-lookin’ kid. On occasion, he can be particularly sweet or a bit surly. He is also trans.
