Welcome new Hotline Advocate, Jana Grafe! Jana will be answering hotline calls after business hours on the 24-hour statewide hotline. She will provide crisis intervention, emotional support, resources and more to those individuals who have been hurt or harmed by crime.
Jana comes to VSS with a wealth of knowledge working as a Legal Assistant for the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office and many law firms. She has her Legal Secretary Certificate, Associate’s Degree with an emphasis in pre-nursing courses as well as her Speech Language Pathology Assistant AAAS, where she graduated with honors.
Jana was born and raised here in Washington, has 3 adult children ranging in age from 18 to 25, and has become addicted to zip-lining even though she has only been twice. A fun fact is that she has had 37 labs and used to have a breeding pair of AKC chocolate labs. It was a truly amazing experience for her and is she still in contact with many of the people who bought puppies from her. Jana also really enjoys going to the movies and misses drive-in theaters.
Help us by welcoming Jana to the VSS team, we are very excited!
