Mentor to: Lisa Weaver, Shauna Clinning, Leslie Sutherland, Elise Cole
As a newly experienced Public Service Reference Librarians at the Oakville Public Library we were lucky to have a mentor like Janice to give us a veteran yet fresh and welcoming perspective to Information Services. Janice not only modeled but patiently mentored us to become the Public Service professionals we are today. Her commitment to fully understanding systems, questions asked by patrons, as well as library services in general ensured success for herself, as well as her staff.
Janice has always helped others in her early years she babysat for only $0.25 an hour in Timmins. She began her library career in Kingston and has also worked MacMaster and Burlington Public Library.
An avid traveler and paper crafter, aunt Janice is a model of excellence in public service and mentorship.
