About Our Speaker

A feminist, entrepreneur, author & speaker committed to social justice. Dr. Janelle Briggs understands the value and beauty of humanity and, more importantly, how to disseminate a message of inclusion and social change. Janelle is the co-founder and CEO of Stackhouse — a Tucson, Arizona-based container living company specializing in eco-friendly, elevated living alternatives to the rising cost of urban housing.

A lifelong lover of academia, Janelle holds a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Master of Arts in Communication Studies from the University of Louisiana-Monroe in 2007 and 2009, respectively. While working toward her doctorate, Janelle performed extensive research in the areas of feminist and political theory — both of which beautifully intertwined to greatly influence her advocacy work. The additional education and experience catapulted her expertise while she honed her skills and cemented her communication methods as accessible, inclusive and empowering. She received her Ph.D. in Speech Communication from Southern Illinois University in 2014.

What is TYP?
