Academic Program Coordinator

CJP - Center for Justice & Peacebuilding

Janelle Myers-Benner completed undergraduate studies in justice, peace and conflict studies, with minors in Spanish and psychology, at EMU in April 2001. She began working part-time at CJP in 1999 while finishing her B.A. degree. Prior to that she spent time in Immokalee, Florida and Santa Cruz, Bolivia serving as a volunteer.

She lives with her family on their 6 acre homestead (Tangly Woods) in Keezletown, where they are in the never-ending and very fulfilling process of designing and enacting the permaculture plan for their property. When she is not in the office, she can probably be found in one of their gardens or in the kitchen working on some food preparation/preservation project.
