Janet spent six years working in an event planning office. She assisted the planners who handled all aspects of meetings of up to 500 attendees. Janet began as a receptionist but worked up to handling all of the onsite IT needs in addition to assisting the planners. In the early days of Microsoft Access, Janet wrote a program that they internally called Program Profiles which handled all of the office business including registering program attendees, tracking expenses, and recording client contact and information.
As an educator, Janet's expertise in event planning has paid off. She organizes several internal events each year from National Junior Honor Society inductions to the yearly graduation ceremony. She also plans and executes a yearly class trip for her students with budgets upwards of $50K. She understands what needs to be done every step of the way to host a successful event.
