What She’s Passionate About

Designing learning experiences that are meaningful and encouraging to the performer. Jan likes a good challenge of combining technical and soft skills in a way that replicates the performance environment.

Professional Experience

Previously Jan was in the corporate eLearning arena when in 1994 a university contact introduced her to a local company. After relocating to Atlanta, she worked as an independent eLearning consultant until accepting a permanent position at Centurion Systems in 1997. While at Centurion, she was immersed in hundreds of technology-based performance solutions as well as the overall learning strategy. She joined TiER1 during Centurion’s acquisition in 2016.

An Unlikely Path

Jan has a master’s degree in Slavic languages and literatures. Don’t expect her to read War and Peace in the original though, because she informed us that almost half of it is in French!

Her Favorite Quote

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – Albus Dumbledore

Fun Facts

Jan has been playing bass guitar since age 18 and can’t live without her iPhone and Apple Watch.
