Janet is the Manager of J.R.'s Domain LLC, an environmental business that is based in Anderson, Indiana.
In addition, Janet is the proud owner of over 210 acres of land and timber as well as deer hunting and recreational items. Janet's acreage in Sharp, LA was acquired in the early 80's after her father's death. "It had some fairly new volunteer trees that would need several years growth to be of much value." Janet said.
She also states, "I waited patiently and in the mid-90's started to think about forming a family company (LLC). While on vacation with our two granddaughters, I solicited their help to name the LLC. My oldest granddaughter (graduating from college this year) quickly came up with the name JR'S Domain LLC to honor my father, J R Sharp and since it was also my initials, it was a done deal. Soon afterward the LLC was legally established. We hired a forestry consultant and not long afterward we were cutting down trees."
She states, "My interest in the Forestry/Timber business began years ago in my youth as I observed my Father's love of and involvement in acquiring land, logging and sawmilling. He was the second generation working in the business after having spent several years in the classroom. I planted my first stand of pine trees as a 4-H Forestry project as a teenager. I attended State Forestry Camp in high school and later studied on my own.
A retired school teacher of 30 years, Janet's passion for the environment led to her entrepreneurial venture with J.R.'s Domain.The business now has an excellent stand of Loblolly Pine trees that have had really good growth since they clear cut the property some 12 years ago and had the site prepped and seedlings hand planted.
Professionally, Janet is extremely proud of her 30 years of teaching in secondary education. She shares, "Also it was very gratifying to be able to replant the site by using the cost-share assistance program through the Louisiana Dept. of Agriculture and Forestry. We were also able to build a Log Cabin Headquarters for JR'S Domain LLC with a storage building for equipment headquarters for JR'S Domain LLC with a storage building for equipment. This was accomplished through the financial gains from our clear cut of timber."
Janet counts her greatest personal accomplishment so far as being her 50 year marriage to her husband, Dr. Don Brandon, Head Baseball Coach and Professor at Anderson University for 38 years, her 2 children and 6 grandchildren. Janet says, "Watching their accomplishments and activities are my proudest moments."
In her spare time, Janet enjoys baseball, cooking and traveling.
