Janet joined the team at East Side Elders in mid-June 2015 and brought a varied and rich background in non-profit management.  Her passion for quality of care and quality of life for our elderly citizens is what drives her to seek out the best resources and the best people to provide care and services.  As an educator, Janet has developed presentations that address sensitive topics such as Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation, and Bullying.  

Janet represents East Side Elders at the East Side Health and Wellbeing Collaborative, and is particularly active in the East Side Table Senior Advisory Council  where she works with seniors to promote healthy eating and wellness.

She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of East Sussex, England, and her previous professional assignments include leadership positions at the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America, ElderCare Rights Alliance, Tubman, Minnesota Medical Association and Trumbull Loves Children.  Her interests outside the office include music, dance and theater, gardening and cooking.  She lives with her husband and two German Shepherd dogs in Woodbury.
