Upon returning to Illinois, Janet worked for 12 years as the Director of Brand Management and Communication for Girl Scouts of DuPage County Council, outside of Chicago, working on behalf of more than 25,000 girls from 5 to 17 years of age and more than 5,000 adult volunteers.

She moved to California with her husband in 2010 and, when not working, enjoys golfing and swimming in Dove Canyon, and rooting for the Clemson Tigers (We're #1!). Most importantly, Janet is the world's biggest hockey fan. Go Blackhawks!
