About Janis

Linked Profile PicHello and welcome to the Importance of Being Social Blog.

My name is Janis Butkevics, and if you are wondering why I have such a peculiar name it is because I was born in Riga, Latvia. I moved to the United States when I was just turning 12. I have lived, went to school, and worked in the US ever since. When I first came to the US I lived in Boston, the greatest city there is.

I am currently serving in the US Army, and have been in the service for close to eight years now working in various positions. Although this career has been challenging at times it has taught me a number of valuable lessons as well as given me opportunities I would never have had otherwise.

I attended Post University, a small school in Connecticut and graduated in 2012 with a B.S. in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing. As strange as it may seem I thoroughly enjoy school and learning. Currently I just started school again, this time at the University of Florida School of Journalism and Communication in the Maser of Arts in Mass Communication – Social Media program.
