When asked her favorite part about working at Employers Council, Jana replied, “I love interacting with my members daily, be it on the phone, in person, or (if distance is an issue) through web technology. Getting to know my main contacts and their organizations’ cultures, values, and HR practices is highly gratifying. I also get the privilege to work internally with the most knowledgeable staff at Employers Council in the areas of Human Resource and Employment Law. I learn something new each and every day!” Employers Council and our members are lucky to have Jana as an HR consultant!

In her free time, Jana enjoys spending time with family, softball, and traveling when possible.
