- Personal Enrichment
Janis Jasinsky contributed at Hewlett Packard for 28 years, with executive roles in Finance, Operations and Marketing.
These positions enabled her to gain experience across various business, customer and geographic sectors. After an early retirement in 2012, Janis joined the Portland, OR Encore Fellows Program and worked for 16 months with Gateway to College, a national non-profit whose programs enable at-risk young people to complete high school while earning college credit. Since completing her fellowship, Janis has worked with several nonprofits in the Portland area on a variety of projects including strategic planning, process improvement, development of training, etc. She is also very active with the Alzheimer's Association, raising both money and awareness. Janis is trained to deliver Alzheimer's outreach and classes to educate the public on the issues of Alzheimer's.
Janis is passionate about elder care, and gained her expertise as she cared for her mother, diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Janis realized the complexity of managing her mother's care, housing, medical needs, financial and legal issues. Her desire now is to share that knowledge with others who find themselves (or anticipate) caring for others.
Janis holds a Masters in Finance from the University of Illinois.
