Janet's Blog

Welcome to my blog. After decades of working extensively with First Nation communities, communications and corporate strategy and finally the mining sector, l have many stories to share about these great experiences. It’s an amazing world out there, incredible people and an underappreciated sector that drives our economy and quality of life. I highly recommend the road less travelled. Enjoy!
