Northwest Island Associates

Janice majored in Art at Western Washington University and began her career as an elementary school teacher in Anacortes once she and Glen moved to Guemes. She has been with Anacortes School district as a classroom teacher, substitute teacher and now as an Artist in Residence. She loves the opportunity to work with kids and watch them develop an appreciation for learning and for art.

Janice and her good friend Dawn Ashbach collaborated on two cookbooks - San Juan Classics and San Juan Classic II. Both women were substitute teaching, both had two school age boys at the time, and both decided that this was something they could do. They quickly realized that cooking, and knowing how to cook, was a completely different animal than writing recipes. They cooked, ate, converted ingredients, ate, typed {no computer} and ate their way through the process. They patronized the finest restaurants and gathered recipes from family, friends and chefs. They’ve prepared each and every recipe. The book has a brief written history, including photos of the San Juan Islands.
