Janet has always been fascinated with water – the stuff we swim in, ski on, paint pictures of, and derive life from. She feels very fortunate to have a career that connects her nerdy technical abilities with her love of water. She finds it very rewarding to create workable solutions when multiple entities are clamoring for the same limited resource. Janet initially joined LRE in 1982, took a seven-year hiatus to stay home with three great kids, teach piano lessons, and then returned to LRE where she is now a Principal Shareholder and Senior Project Manager. Her expertise is in water rights and water resources analyses, planning, and management. This includes historical use analyses for water court change cases, development of plans for augmentation and exchanges, expert testimony and litigation support, water supply planning, hydrologic analyses and yield studies, reservoir and water system operations and modeling, and water rights appraisals. Janet has a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering and is registered as a Professional Engineer in Colorado and Wyoming.
