Since starting her career as a labor manager of a local, industrial, staffing agency, Jan has been an integral part of the staffing industry for the past 25 years. In 1993, she opened Alternative Staffing, Inc. in a small office on Remount Road to offer custom staffing solutions to local business. In 2009, Alternative Staffing opened its state-of-the-art facility—right up the road from that first small office.
From the beginning, Jan has believed in investing in the community that embraced Alternative Staffing. She has been a member of the South Carolina Staffing Association for years and served numerous positions on the board, including two terms as president. Jan is also very involved in the business community and has been a board member for the Trident Workforce Investment Board for more than 10 years, serving as chair for two of those years. An active Rotarian, Jan is a big supporter of Communities in Schools and a leader in fundraising for the Annual Roundball Classic Basketball Tournament.
A long-time advocate of the use of professional affiliated staffing services and certified recruiters, Jan is also an aggressive proponent of membership in The South Carolina Staffing Association, believing that membership in this association promotes ethical behavior in our industry.
Alternative Staffing partners closely with the One Stop System and other community agencies to provide employment opportunities.
Jan graduated from the Illinois State University Magna Cum Laude with a degree in social work.
