She is a member of Delta Mu Delta, the Golden Key Honour Society, the Society of Professional Consultants, the International Leadership Association, and the Professional Editors Network (PEN).

Dr. Hall has disseminated the findings of her doctoral study, Tribal Gaming Leaders toward a Sustainable Future through the submission of peer-reviewed articles, a research symposium, multiple speaking engagements, and a peer-reviewed chapter in The Refractive Thinker entitled Native American Women in Leadership Working toward a Sustainable Future. Her study has provided her the opportunity to gain professional and academic expertise to facilitate improvements in small and medium-sized businesses. She has published works in the American Indian Quarterly, The Refractive Thinker, The Journal of Social Change, The Qualitative Report, and more.

Dr. Janie Hall resides in Joplin, MO. She contributes to positive social change through her work as a Walden University Alumni Ambassador, a master gardener, her active role in America's Adopt a Soldier projects, and a board member for the Ozark Gateway Regional Master Gardeners chapter of the Missouri University extension. The volunteer effort is to provide education, leadership, training, and support for the Jasper County community. Workshops, speaker’s bureaus, and demonstration projects allow Master Gardeners to provide education each year in person or through helplines. Additionally, her master gardening team provides thousands of pounds of produce to nonprofit organizations to feed families who have been identified as food insecure. Dr. Hall earned a certificate as a state fair floriculture judge. In 2022, she spent countless hours with Maui and trainers to prepare her deaf french bulldog (Maui) as a pet therapy dog. The pet therapy team will use their skills to alleviate manifestations of cognitive disorders, boost overall morale, and work with disadvantaged youth and individuals within their local and surrounding communities. In her spare time, she owns and manages corporate rental properties.
