Debbie Janak began her educational journey at Texas A&M University, her love of animals leading her to obtain an undergraduate degree in Animal Science. Prior to pursuing a career in the medical field, Debbie and her husband raised their two children while maintaining the Janak farm, a working farm that raises cattle, sheep, horses, blood hounds, and peacocks. Raised in a household that held to the belief in Vitamin C to cure the common cold and juiced carrots before juicing was a fad, Debbie fell right into the pursuit of health naturally. At one time, The Janaks had 15 acres certified “organic” by the State of Texas and raised various vegetables and melons that were sold to Whole Foods in Houston.
With a passion for human biology and health, Debbie obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing with honors in 1995 and went on to pursue her Master of Science in Nursing specializing in the Family Nurse Practitioner track in 2005. Debbie has over twelve years’ experience as a Registered Nurse and has a background in Operating Room and Emergency Medicine. Upon obtaining her license as Nurse Practitioner, Debbie joined our team at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center in 2007 with a passion for learning and a desire to treat patients from a natural perspective. We are privileged to have Debbie as a valued member of our team! Debbie and Mack have been married for 27 years and continue to maintain their farm. Her absolute joy is in spending time with her family and with her history, it comes as no surprise that Debbie is an avid gardener and views working in her garden as “therapy for her soul”. For fun, Debbie also enjoys traveling and often ends up in the tropics where she spends time snorkeling.
