Director of Housing Services
Janet has over 25 years of experience working in supportive housing and development, but her career didn’t begin in non-profit.
Janet’s background is in business, and she spent the first part of her career as a manager of a fabricating company where she designed a variety of tanks, specializing in propane tanks. Wanting to make a transition into work that helped people, she got her first non-profit job as a manager for a small non-profit housing society in the Interior.
In her 20 years as our Director of Housing Services, Janet has helped to secure $33 million in operating funds for our supportive housing building, Taylor Manor, and secured the 1134 Burrard Project, which is now Kettle on Burrard. Outside of work, Janet enjoys walking her dog and spending time in nature, especially on rainy days, and gardening.
