Hello! I am Janis (Russell) Budds. I grew up in Old Forge and graduated from the Town of Webb School. The running joke is I am related to half the town, but it is true!
I graduated from Marist College and then went on to graduate school at the University of Connecticut and have a Master’s Degree in Survey Research. After graduation I worked at Voter News Service in the World Trade Center as an Assistant Manager for Exit Poll Operations. I spent several years living in New York City, Hartford, CT, and Poughkeepsie working in Consumer Insights for Diageo, PepsiCo and Travelers.
I moved back to Old Forge in 2016 with my husband Colin and 3 children; Alexander, Kathryn and Colin Jr. I started working at View in May of 2017 and now work in Membership and Volunteer Relations.
I love being back home in the Adirondacks and having my children experience all of its beauty.
