    Janiece Smith

    Janiece is a Miami native who loves God, loves people, and is called to serve them. In 2009, she heard a message preached by Dr. Alvin D. Stewart, Jr. in Tallahassee, Florida, that encouraged her and others to be an answer in every room and situation. She took that to heart, and it became the foundation upon which The Answer Group Consulting, LLC—affectionately known as TAG Consulting—was built. She has worked in various industries for over 20 years as an administrator, customer service representative, financial analyst, dispatcher, regional manager, and executive director. She extracted transferable skills from each of these experiences that have made her a trusted name and an expert in organizational improvement. Because of that experience and education below, Janiece is an Industrial-Organizational Psychology Practitioner.

    Janiece's educational background includes a BS in Business Administration and an MS in Psychology with a concentration in Organizational Science (Industrial-Organizational Psychology) from Florida International University. She is also a licensed insurance agent in Florida, Georgia, Texas, and Virginia. Janiece is a consummate professional who believes in partnering with others to help them achieve their wildest dreams. She knows having a solid foundation and support system is the key to success. If you were to ask her who she is, she would tell you, "I am an answer!"
