Jana joined the Resource Center in May of 2016 following a career as an Educator and Reading Specialist of 18 years. She and her husband, Eric, have two young adult children pursuing their professional degrees, and two rambunctious Airedales at home to entertain them as they continue to transition to an empty nest.
Jana’s educational background includes an MA in Education and Reading Specialist and a BA in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. Educating children on caring for our delicate planet, children’s ministries, literacy, 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and establishing community and public school recycling programs have been her passion for over 30 years.
