Today’s member spotlight is on one of our newest members, Janet Crawford (previously Cellier) who is well known around Adelaide along with her husband, Keith, for being an avid and very stylish supporter of the both the performing and visual arts in Adelaide, and lover all things beautiful including gardens, music and fashion. Janet has lived a fascinating life, having worked overseas in Hong Kong and in London, before returning to SA in 1969 and then living in the outback as a grazier’s wife, her four children studying remotely with the School of the Air.
Janet’s life changed dramatically when she was widowed in 1986 following a tragic plane accident. For the next 15 years, she worked in Broken Hill where she build a state of the art physiotherapy clinic for which she was awarded “Business Woman of the Year”.
Since returning to Adelaide in 2000, Janet has continued to practice physiotherapy and is also a Board Member of the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation. Janet tells us she was motivated to join Impact 100 SA as she loves the collective giving model and the support that Impact 100 gives to charities and not-for-profits in Adelaide through not only our high impact grants, but also our mentoring and promotion.
Janet says she is keen to get involved more and is delighted to find somewhere to use her vision and energy to assist others, and despite having only joined recently, assisted us by taking photos at our recent Shortlisting Event. Welcome Janet!
