Janna joined the Office of Public Affairs and Communications in December 2003. In a previous life, she edited nearly 200 books for Microsoft Press, Osborne-McGraw-Hill, Sybex, Ziff Davis, Addison-Wesley, and other houses. Her favorite gig was working on a small literary magazine in San Francisco.
Janna returned to her native Portland in 2002, after several years of touring the provinces. She is happy to be back among well-stocked libraries, urban trees, farmers markets, and healthy doses of precipitation.
