Janice Slonecker Berman recently retired from Nike, Inc. after 23 years, her last position being Sr. Director Product Creation Center (Apparel). Her “encore” goal is to leverage her professional experience and passion for non-profit and board work, even going so far as to taking a grant writing course in preparation.
Janice and her husband Brad first visited Manzanita in 1997 and purchased property in 2010. They currently split their time living between Portland and Manzanita and look forward to helping the Hoffman Center for the Arts, and the overall community, thrive.
Janice and Brad are proud parents, and recent “empty nesters”, both daughters attend the University of Oregon. Janice is a University of Washington graduate with a degree in Textile Design. Although a proud Husky—she is a University of Washington graduate with a degree in Textile Design—she is also an avid Duck fan, especially during football and volleyball season.
Fun fact: Janice and her family spent two-years in Shanghai, China on a Nike, Inc. expat assignment. While there, her favorite personal vacation was to Siem Reip Cambodia, where she loved visiting all of the Angkor Temples, the hospitality of the local people, the food, and hand-loomed textiles.
