Janet Masters

Chief Financial Officer

Janet has been with Talking Talons since 2007, when she started as a volunteer and joined the staff as a bookkeeper shortly after. Since then, Janet has served a variety of roles within the organization including supporting management of the Thrift Store and grant management. Currently, as the CFO, she works closely with the Executive Director to keep the organization on track.

Janet was born in New York and after living for a time in both Colorado and Pennsylvania, came to New Mexico in 2007. She was drawn to Cedar Crest as a friendly, small mountain community and has lived here ever since. She enjoys talking long walks, smelling the roasting chiles in the fall, and supporting local businesses. Janet is a nature lover, a music lover and a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. She has an elderly shih tzu named Lily, who thinks that she is in charge.

Janet also supports the Mountainside United Methodist Church as a part-time bookkeeper. She has some experience with computer programming in her past as well.

Janet looks forward to next chapter for Talking Talons Youth Leadership.
