Jan is a very well known figure on the international charter scene. Born in Europe, Jan was raised in a rural Pennsylvania community near Scranton. As the only girl in a family with six brothers, she learned the discipline of working hard. Jan initially embarked upon a career in nursing but soon found herself looking to make a change and relocated to Florida. Her introduction to yacht chartering came when she landed a job as Manager of a bareboat fleet; the first female in the USA to be in this position. She soon moved on to booking luxury yacht charters working with several prominent firms in Ft. Lauderdale while gaining vast experience in the charter industry and the reputation as a knowledgeable broker. Jan joined Fraser in 1994 taking a fledgling charter operation and turning it into one of the most productive divisions in our corporate group. Jan's sales record has always been incredibly strong, handling some of the world's most expensive charters for an impressive list of prominent clientele. You can always count on her to maintain the strictest confidentiality - one of the reasons Jan has a loyal following of clients who depend upon her expertise as a tough but fair negotiator. Jan's attention to detail is legendary - the mark of a true professional and her reputation among her peers is equally confident. Jan is the current Past President of the American Yacht Charter Association (AYCA) after serving for four years as President and more than 10 years on the Board, a testament to her professional standards and peer appreciation. She also served on the By Laws committe and was Chair of the By Laws for a time as well as a contributing member of the Contract Committee for many years. Jan is also a member of the AYCA sister organization, Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA). Jan lives in Ft Lauderdale, the Hub of the yachting industry in the United States. Jan says: "We are so lucky to live here since it gives us access to a majority of the yachts in the charter industry. As they travel to, and from, a charter destination, Ft Lauderdale is a major stop to get ready for the next season and this does give us an advantage." Jan really loves her job here at Fraser and continues to be enthusiastic about yachting vacations as the ultimate get away!!
