Jan Beatty-Adams, Program Manager, East County Campus
In 2002 I began working for Everett Community College assisting the director of the Monroe satellite and now serve as East County’s Program Manager, Campus Services. It’s exciting to participate in a campus that encourages and prospers a community by providing access to education opportunities for students of all levels.
I have a special fondness for this part of Snohomish County where I enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors.

I am a multifaceted person and I have worked in many different areas: in Education as a Spanish tutor, in Arts as an event photographer, and in tourism as a national tour guide in Ecuador. These have been my main jobs or occupations and inevitably have formed my personality. I have had one of the most positive experiences as a student and an employee working in the position of Instructional Classroom Support Technician.
