Jan Short

Mountaineering, Expedition Logistics, Senior Management Team

Jan has always loved travel and the outdoors as hobbies, while spending decades working in the IT industry as a project manager.

When Jan had the opportunity of switching career to work with Chris in 1996 when Far Frontiers Expeditions was incorporated, she jumped at the chance!  

Her responsibilities with the company have covered many and diverse areas, but since the company has grown over the past decade, she is now concentrating on the website, Mountaineering and special projects and is also responsible for the customer journey through Far Frontiers Expeditions.
