Janet is an avid hiker, rafter, and outdoors-woman. She has lived in the Santa Fe area most of her adult life, with shorter intervals in northwestern New Mexico and southeastern Utah. Her professional life as an archaeologist (and nine years as a river guide) have allowed her to pursue a life outdoors where she is most in her element. As an archaeologist, Janet worked for the National Park Service, private consulting companies, Department of Energy at Los Alamos, and the State of New Mexico, where she directed and participated in dozens of projects, some several years long, conducting archaeological surveys, excavations, and archaeological site documentation. As part of Janet’s Master’s research at Northern Arizona University, she studied past environments and climate to better understand why prehistoric populations occupied areas at certain times and places and not others. This enduring interest in the environment and climate (in association with human behavior) led Janet to the NM Climate Masters course sponsored by Santa Fe Watershed Association (SFWA) in 2012, and an active and ongoing interest in SFWA.
