Bio: Janis began her career in nursing where she worked until being laid off in the mid-1990s which prompted a return to university. With degrees in sociology, women’s studies and education Janis then worked for non-profit and for profit businesses where she was employed both as a front-line staff member and manager. Prior to coming to the college Janis worked in areas of volunteer coordination, developmental services, seniors’ care and victim services.

Janis has been a life-long volunteer in such areas as on a board of directors for non-profit agencies, friendly visiting with seniors, respite care and most recently fostering dogs for a rescue organization.

In her spare time Janis enjoys gardening, walking her three dogs and working on her hobby farm raising chickens, turkeys and pigs.
