Janet took an unusual path to the world of HR. After a 10-year career in employee benefits and insurance, she switched to HR and has been an active practitioner for over 25 years.
Janet spent the bulk of her career in the state of Alaska after moving there to attend college at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on a Division I Rifle Scholarship.
Janet credits her diverse HR background to practicing in the Last Frontier. Working in Alaska offered many remote opportunities in the HR profession. Throughout her career, she worked as part of a small HR team and worked outside of her comfort zone to gain skills in a variety of HR practice areas.
Throughout Janet’s career in Alaska, Janet held senior HR leadership positions on the Alaska pipeline, with CH2MHill on the Northslope oil fields, and with Chenega Corporation, a prominent Alaska Native Corporation.
Janet recently relocated to Virginia and is currently the Chief Human Resources Officer for SOS International, a dynamic international government contractor working in the technology, defense, and intelligence sectors.
She has been a volunteer to HRCI for over 10 years, first as an item writer and now is very excited to be joining the Board of Directors and contribute to HRCI in another meaningful way.
