For two decades they have continued the work they began while in public service, providing advice, planning, and legislative or executive branch strategies to assist clients in identifying and meeting their goals and objectives in Washington, D.C. and New York. Since 2003, when The Ickes & Enright Group affiliated with Peck, Madigan, Jones & Stewart, and subsequently formed the Tiber Creek Group, adding four additional operating firms and an office in New York City, Janice has been a key member of the management team, serving as the only woman owner and Board member.
Janice and Harold have been working together since 1985, first at the New York law firm of Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein, P.C., followed by the 1992 New York Democratic presidential primary campaign, the 1992 Democratic National Convention, and the 1992 Clinton/Gore White House transition team in Little Rock, Arkansas. Janice joined the White House in 1994 as Special Assistant to Harold Ickes, the Deputy Chief of Staff; she was responsible for the management of the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff. In that capacity, she was Harold’s primary liaison to senior White House officials, Cabinet members, agency staff, members of Congress and their senior staff, Democratic Party officials, interest groups and the press.
Janice earned her BS in Education from the State University of New York. In her work at the firm, she continues her focus on education, particularly in early learning and workforce development programs for the most vulnerable— hardworking underemployed, underpaid workers in America.
