About Janet Offensend:

Janet Offensend served as the inaugural chairman of the Wassaic Project Board, and in her 5 years in the position, transformed the organization into what it is today.  She is a champion of the arts, the Wassaic community, and has been an incredible mentor and board leader for the past 5 years.

Janet began her career in corporate lending at Chemical Bank after graduating from Princeton University with a degree in Public and International Affairs. From 1999-2000 she worked at the Starr Foundation, but she has largely spent the past 25 years working as a volunteer and board member of Planned Parenthood of New York City, Brooklyn Kindergarten Society, Brooklyn Public Library, Packer Collegiate Institute and Congregational Church of Salisbury, CT. Her particular interests are strategic planning, organizational capacity building, and fundraising. She currently lives in Boston and Wassaic.
