Director, Beginner & Rehabilitation
Janet was born and raised in Peterborough, Ontario. A very active sportswoman playing representative ice hockey, basketball and lacrosse until concussions told her it was time to retire from contact sports. In her spare time, Janet needs to hike. A lot. Summiting Kilimanjaro and running the Grand Canyon rim to rim in a day (during a heatwave) are a couple of her most memorable adventures. Janet's mom was a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Peterborough Regional Health Centre during her career, and along with being extremely close with her grandmother, has developed her great empathy for drivers wanting to maintain their driving independence after a medical event.
