Janet grew up in New York City where her passion for music was nurtured at the High School of Music and Art. After completing degrees in music history and theory and immigrating to Canada, Janet was bitten by the radio bug and was ecstatic when she was offered a position with the CBC Stereo network. She enjoyed a lengthy and stimulating career with CBC as a program and recording producer, as Executive Producer of several Vancouver-based programs, and as Head of Music for CBC English Radio, based in Toronto. After returning to Vancouver, Janet migrated to the world of dance as Ballet BC’s Artistic Administrator and as Program Coordinator for The Banff Centre’s dance program. Janet has also served on the boards of several not-for-profit arts organizations, most recently with City Opera Vancouver where she also co-produced several company productions.
