Janis is now retired, but before this she worked for over 25 years for the Careers Service (Connexions) in a variety of jobs.
Janis became a Councillor to try to help people in the Ripley Township area and particularly in her Ward of Elms - not always by shouting but by working quietly behind the scenes.
Janis is married with one daughter, a son and four granddaughters and a great grandson. Her interests are in knitting and politics. The first time she voted was for herself and she won at the age of 22.
Outside of Ripley Town Council, Janis' work tends to be behind the scenes. She chairs the Ripley Branch of the Labour Party and she is Secretary of the Amber Valley Constituency Labour Party. She has been a Governor on various schools in Ripley.
Janis tries to improve the Ripley Township by shopping locally and attending local events.
