She was a loyal Seminole fan during her 31 years as a dedicated Professor of Medical Technology at the University of Florida. In 1985 she was awarded the Morton Wolfson Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Quality of Student Life on Campus. When she retired from the University of Florida in 1989, Janet was named Assistant Professor Emeritus. She was instrumental in starting Kappa Alpha Theta's Delta Theta Chapter at the University of Florida in the early 1960's.
