Born and raised in Granite City, Ill.,
Janet Koth has lived her entire life in the St. Louis
area. In 1979, she graduated from the Jewish Hospital
School of Nursing, also in St. Louis. A registered nurse
and former sales representative, Koth now divides her
time between family, motivational presentations and
tasks as an independent travel consultant. She is also
planning to become certified in the field of hypnosis.
Koth's favorite hobbies are drama, writing, camping and
hiking. She describes herself as energetic, creative and
a risk-taker. If she could hold any political office,
she'd like to be President of the United States because
of her determination to be in control and to influence
people. She is most proud of the fact that she and her
husband, Kurt, were among the first American families to
successfully adopt from a Russian orphanage. If she wins
the $1 million, she'll treat her family and parents to
an extravagant Hawaiian vacation.
Koth currently resides in Manchester, Mo., with her
husband and two girls, Kate and Natalie, along with
three Siamese cats. Her birth date is November 18, 1955.
