Director of Finance and
Human Resources

Janis earned a degree in nursing and worked in adult and neonatal critical care for 12 years as a registered nurse, before raising her family and then redirecting her focus to veterinary care and office management.

Before coming to The Gorilla Foundation, Janis worked for several local veterinary hospitals, including the non-profit Nine Lives Foundation, where she was assistant to the chief veterinarian as well as their office manager and bookkeeper.

Ms. Haussler is excited to be with The Gorilla Foundation, where she can combine her love of animals with her financial and human resource management skills.

Her impressive work ethic and passion for details are exactly what the Gorilla Foundation needs to maximize its efficiency and effectiveness as a lean non-profit organization with extremely challenging and vital goals to accomplish.
