    The Stayton Welcomed Actress Janine Turner to Share Her Tips for Turning Adversity to Advantage

    As part of their Red Carpet Speaker Series, The Stayton at Museum Way welcomed actress Janine Turner to talk about 10 Steps to Triumph: Janine Turner’s Tips for Turning Adversity to Advantage. Turner shared her inspiring story of triumph in Hollywood and in life. Residents and guests were able to stay after the presentation for Q&A session with the actress.

    “Janine is such a beautiful lady and to hear her story of success after facing so many obstacles is inspiring,” said Amy Janak, lifestyles director at The Stayton. “Her tips are things we can all use in our daily lives, but the best part of the talk was seeing how Janine overcame obstacles in her own life to become the successful woman she is today.”

    After facing repeated rejection in Hollywood, Turner was about to give up hope but eventually won the lead role in the 90s TV show, Northern Exposure. Since then, she has been a top model, actress, author, single mother, long horn rancher, and currently hosts a radio talk show, The Janine Turner Show: All American Common Sense.


    Located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District, The Stayton at Museum Way is an 11-story, three building community featuring 188 independent living residences with a variety of spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. In addition to resort-style independent living, The Stayton provides onsite assisted living, memory support, and private skilled nursing for life care residents and others in the community.
