In 1997 Jan became the Director of the Evergreen, a position that she has held since. Jan also held the position of Regional Director for the Evergreen, the CountryHouse, and the Kensington in Williston.

Jan had a fondness for the Relay for Life and the Central Dakota Humane Society. She enjoyed reading, game shows, going for walks, trips to the casino, but her faith and her family were the dearest things to her.
