Janet Abbott Fast, Editor, Publisher

     Publishing Chesapeake Style is a fourth career for Janet. In her earlier lives she was a wife and mother, sold cosmetics and later became a regional sales manager for a group health insurance company in Northern Illinois. She also was a boater on the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers for 25 years, and, for 25 years, taught Red Cross Swimming courses and Adapted Aquatics courses in the Midwest. Janet grew up in Richmond and, after graduating from James Madison University, moved to Wisconsin and Illinois with her husband. There they raised a son and a daughter. She has three grandchildren and a great-grandchild. Janet came back to Virginia to a high school class reunion in 1991 and within two years returned to Virginia. Before moving she had designed and built a house “I was going to live in it until I died.” She simply built it again in the Northern Neck. She jokes that the “next time the furniture leaves that home will be when my ashes are spread over the marsh.” She shares her home with several German Wirehaired Pointers, rescued cats, and a variety of parrots. She breeds and shows German Wirehaired Pointers, spends too little time in her garden and enjoys reading, when time permits
