She actively works to strengthen the presence of the Company in the Tallahassee community and has nurtured the support of The Tallahassee Ballet’s many supporters and sponsors.

Janet has held multiple professional positions in business marketing and advertising, including co-owner of P&G Marketing Group, advertising manager of The Tallahassee Ballet, and advertising representative for Rowland Publishing. She was also a member of the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce Leadership Tallahassee Class 26 that worked to raise support for Tallahassee’s Cascades Park.
