Janice Spence Wilmot earned her BS in Nursing, passed her RN boards and then went on to earn her Masters. During this time, she worked as a staff RN, occasional shift leader moving up to an instructor and assistant director of the nursing program.
But that didn’t satisfy her need to serve, so she joined the Air Force. Her tours included working as an Infection Control Nurse, Health Education, Charge Nurse, Primary Care Clinic, Level 2 Newborn Nursery, Staff Nurse for deployable hospital, Labor and Delivery and a Perinatal unit Shift Leader. She entered the Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Program, and after passing her boards, served as a WHNP Clinic Lead and Acting Hospital lead prn, Staff RN/ WHNP/ Clinic Lead for Deployable Hospital. She retired as a Lieutenant Colonel after 23 years.
After the Air Force, she continued working as a WHNP until she retired in full. She turned her attention to volunteering with QOVF, American Red Cross and Nellis AFB among others. She’s been recognized many times for her leadership, volunteer of the year, and continues to teach, train and volunteer.
She moved from Nevada to Georgia to move in with her Army Veteran (1945-1946) father and two cats! She loves the outdoors, gardening, reading, sewing, music.
“My goal is to get our Quilt of Valor nominations assigned quickly to our sewing groups in Georgia, to help coordinate with sewing groups for quilts/supplies when demand exceeds availability; to help coordinate awards for areas of the state who do not have local sewing groups. I hope you will get in touch with me if there is a delay or issue with a Quilt of Valor nomination.”
She’s a great asset to the Foundation, and specifically for our Georgia Veterans and Service Members.
