After high school she attended American International College where she received her Bachelor of Arts in 2002. During her time in school, she worked at Hill Top Services in Springfield. MA as a member of the support staff and later became assistant manager. In 2006 she received her Master of Arts from American International College. During this time, she also gave birth to her son Joshua Gray.

Janniel also worked for Community Residencies, Inc. in Southington, CT from 2009-2011 where she was the permanency clinician. Janniel enjoyed working closely with families and children. She had a passion to help and change the lives of others. Janniel was an active member of Grace Seventh-day Adventist Church in Harford, CT. Janniel was also involved in numerous church activities. Janniel was a very social, vibrant, helpful loving person. Janniel enjoyed reading, spending time with family and friends. However, her true passion was her family, and being a devoted mother to her young son Joshua. Besides her parents, Elgwin and Grace of Hartford, she is survived by her son Joshua Gray; her brother Dwayne Miller of Hartford; her sister Vanessa Miller of Harford; and a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
