As the Chief Executive Officer, Janet leads Christian Horizons, a faith based organization that provides services to people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Christian Horizons serves thousands of people in Ontario and Saskatchewan and around the world.

Appointed as CEO in 2011, Janet began her career with Christian Horizons in 1988, as a part time developmental services professional in Ottawa, while attending Carleton University.

Janet graduated university with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences, and has continued her education through programs such as Arrow Leadership Executive Leadership Program and the Ivey school of Business Leadership Development Program.

Personally, Janet has extensive volunteer experience with community based athletics organizations, church, and other interest groups. Professionally, Janet participates in various industry committees and task groups, committed to promoting employment, post-secondary education and full citizenship with people with intellectual disabilities. Janet currently serves as Chair on the Ontario Provincial Network on Developmental Services.

Janet's commitment is to build communities of belonging: communities that recognize the importance of all contributors participating including those with disabilities. As the leader of Christian Horizons, she is particularly concerned to see communities of faith recognize, be enabled, and be committed to be communities where people with disabilities belong and are embraced.
