Her debut book, the memoir Redefining Realness, became a New York Times bestseller. She is a contributing editor for Marie Claire and a former staff editor of People magazine's website.

Mock lives in New York City. She married photographer Aaron Tredwell in 2015. The couple filed for divorce in February 2019.

Early Life

Janet Mock was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, the second child in the family. Her father, Charlie Mock III, is African-American, and her mother, Elizabeth (née Barrett), is of half Portuguese descent, part Asian descent and part Native Hawaiian (kānaka maoli) descent. Mock lived for most of her youth in her native Hawaii, with portions in Oakland, California; and Dallas. She began her transition as a freshman in high school, and funded her medical transition by earning money as a sex worker in her teens. She played volleyball in high school, a sport she had bonded over with her childhood friend Wendi, who helped Janet express her femininity. She chose her name Janet after Janet Jackson. She was the first person in her family to go to college. She underwent gender confirming surgery in Thailand at the age of 18 in the middle of her first year in college. Mock earned a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Merchandising from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2004 and a Master of Arts in Journalism from New York University in 2006.
