Janet moved to Vancouver from London, England in 2007, when her husband was assigned to work in Canada. Back in London, she worked for Harrods Department Store as a Food Buyer.
Once in Canada she decided to change careers. She moved into the world of construction and home renovation. She worked for a big closet company initially in their Marketing Department and later on shifted gears to their Accounting Department.
She’s always worked with big brands with high standards. Janet is no stranger to dealing with high maintenance clients. She knows that all it takes to win a client is to see things from their perspective! As a homeowner herself, Janet often serves as the “client’s voice” at the office.
Janet started with FairTradeWorks in 2012 as one of the first people to work in the company. She went away for a year and a half on maternity leave. But loyal as ever to FairTradeWorks and what the company represents, Janet came back! She works in the Accounting Department looking after client and vendor invoicing, payroll and all other accounting areas.
Janet loves working with the team at FairTradeWorks and finds that everyday is excitingly different. She believes that FairTradeWorks can make a big difference in the construction industry in Canada.
