Jan is passionate about and responsible for the areas of business and finance, and oversees facility operations. She is part of the Operational Leadership Team as well as the Board Finance Committee.
Jan and her husband, Mattias, have been married for over 25 years and have two adult children who are pursuing their academic and career dreams. Both Jan and her husband actively serve at Elim Church. From board member, missions and other committees (Jan) to tech team (Mattias), they are fully committed to the ministry of their local church. A missions appointment from 1988-1990 captured Jan’s heart and she considers Hong Kong her second home.
Travelling, camping, day hiking and reading captures Jan’s attention in her spare time as well as the ongoing project of renovating their home (which only gets done in between their travels). Travel has so far taken them to Hong Kong, Mongolia, Panama, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Luxemborg, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Scotland, Mexico, the USA and a Caribbean cruise. They also enjoy a wide variety of international cuisine, although Asian food is definitely at the top of the list.
