Janet was born in Evanston, Illinois and grew up in Racine, Wisconsin.  She graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a BS degree in Microbiology.  Following graduation, Janet moved to Colorado.  After working in a lab for a few years, she decided to attend Bel-Rea to become a veterinary technician.  Janet worked at small animal clinics, at an emergency clinic and at a large 24 hr specialty hospital. Janet was given the opportunity to teach Microbiology at Bel-Rea and realized then that she loves to teach.  The class she enjoys most is Pre-Clinical because the faculty and students get to give back to the community by spaying and neutering dogs and cats for the Aurora Animal Shelter.  In turn, Bel-Rea's students gain valuable hands-on experience.  Instructor since 1987.

Special Interests:

  • Traveled to Kenya, Africa on a Rabies vaccine/Spay Neuter Campaign Fall 2016.
  • Working on AAHA Accreditation.
