Janet Bess

Staff Accountant

Janet has the important task of keeping the books for the foundation. “I actually find it challenging to assist with the financial side of our organization,” she says. She certainly is more than capable, having gained extensive experience in business during 12 years with the Virginia Baptist Resource Center and several years in banking before joining the foundation. “People find it interesting when I tell them about my educational background – I have a B.A. in English literature and history from Old Dominion University, and that’s quite different from accounting,” she says. “But I’ve always gotten a lot of satisfaction out of the discipline and organization that accounting requires.” Janet is a Virginia native and a member of Bon Air Baptist Church.
