Jan wanted to be a veterinarian since she was four years old and tried to get the neighbour's cat to come into their yard. Jan's Dad raised Budgies and her first pet was Joey a blue budgie. Her Dad took her to a bird show and she still has a little brooch of a budgie that her Dad bought her.

The last animal Jan remembers before coming to Canada was a large whale that had washed up on Brighton Beach. The whale was so large that a man was standing up in the dead whale's mouth.
