District 2- Janet Martin


I was born in Massachusetts and moved to New Jersey as a teenager. I attended college for over 2 years taking every art & drafting class that was offered.

I worked in the travel/hotel/tourism industry for many years. I was very fortunate to be able to move to Bonita Springs 10 years ago with my husband, Thom. My mother has been a Bonita resident for over 25 years, making me very familiar with all of the growth and changes. We purchased our home 2 blocks from Downtown Old 41 because we believe in the revitalization vision shared by so many. We share our home with several rescued kitties. Our daughter lives in North Carolina and teaches dance at a local studio. She was dancing professionally in New York City when she was only 15 years old. I enjoy being able to garden year round. My interests include drawing and photography. In our spare time we are found out on the water boating and kayaking. We love to catch a Bonita Beach sunset and walking the beach. I hope that you welcome my invitation to become more involved in Bonita Springs along with me. Many days, I can be found volunteering at the Bonita Nature Place.
