Originally hailing from Minneapolis, MN, Janet was called to Mountain View, CA in 2010 to serve as Interim Rector at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church. Since 2012 she has been in the San Diego area serving as the Interim Rector at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Encinitas, St. James by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in La Jolla, and most recently at St. Mary's-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church in Romona.
Ordained in 1993 after years in university and cathedral ministry, she felt called to help churches in transition. A trained and experienced interim rector, she has both rebuilt and led churches and institutions through the spiritual and practical challenges of starting a new life together in Christ.
An avid hiker and musician, she spends a good deal of time both on the local trails and singing. Her passion is pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago de Compostela and St. Cuthbert’s Way starting in Scotland being her most recent. You will often see Janet with Cupertino, (Cuper) her 7-year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix.
