Meet MovinGal


Janet Corniel

Owner. Writer. Founder.
Mother. Author. Mover.

I’m on a mission to calm the chaos of moving because…

Because I’ve been there. I’ve moved across states and I’ve moved across continents. I’ve done DIY moves completely solo, and I’ve managed professional moves with my family. I’ve moved for college and work, for endings and beginnings. I’ve moved baby!

Because I understand. My background in Urban and Regional Planning and experience has taught me the importance of our relationship with community. This connection to community shapes our lives and is the basis of a successful transition. I help people develop healthy relationships with new environments and create places they can truly call home.

Because I know how overwhelming moving can be, and I know how to help. Using my project management skills, I have developed masterful tips and proven techniques to make even the most intimidating move feel like a breeze.

I work with my clients to develop the best plan of action for their move.  I’m not a moving broker.  I’m a moving concierge.  This allows me the opportunity to work hand in glove with my clients.

I thrive on my clients telling me…

“You’re a miracle worker.”

“I couldn’t have done this without you.”

I bring compassion, organization, and wealth of resources to my work. I am an expert in the field of moving because….

I’ve been there.  I understand.  I know how overwhelming it can be.

Ready to find calm in the chaos of moving?

Contact Janet to see how you can make your next move your best move.
