Janette brings a wealth of experience in accounting and finance to Legacy. She worked for Aspen Education Group from 1997 to 2011 as the finance manager for Aspen Achievement Academy. Janette was also concurrently the finance manager for Aspen Ranch and Passages to Recovery for several years. She then transitioned to Legacy Outdoor Adventures when it was founded in 2011.
Janette handles all financial functions for Legacy and Juniper Canyon. “Being a part of the teams at Legacy Outdoor Adventures and Juniper Canyon Recovery Center for Women is much more than making sure the financial end is taken care of, it is gratifying to see the changes in the young men and women from the time they enter until the time they are ready to leave.”
Janette has a bachelor’s degree in accounting. She and her husband Joe have four children who are all married and 12 grandchildren. She enjoys spending as much time as possible with them, and spending time in the beautiful outdoors that surround Loa.
