Biography of Kh. Janet Shadid


I am a licensed social worker in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and a family therapist at Memorial medical Center in the child and adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit. I am an outpatient therapist at Westmont Family Counseling Ministries where I provide individual, couples, family, and group therapy. I have been married to Fr. Don Shadid for 28 years. We have two sons, Christopher (26 years old), and Stephen (24 years old). I grew up in West Roxbury, Massachusetts and attended St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church.

I have been involved in the Church all my life as a church school teacher, youth director, teen advisor, and choir member. I volunteer my counseling services at Antiochian Village during the summers which is where Fr. Don and I met as counselors in the early 1980s.
