Born in the Philippines, Janara moved to the US at the age of seven. In 2008, she received her Bachelors of Architecture from Syracuse University with double minors in Art History and Fine Arts. Her interest in residential work drew her to the Hamptons. Janara joined the firm in 2010 after shortly working two years in Baltimore, Maryland. She quickly found her strengths in architectural interiors and detailing. "The details are not the details. They make the design." (Charles Eames)
Outside of architecture, Janara loves spending time with her husband and daughter. She is expecting her second child in October 2021. She is also an avid boxer, with TRX and spin instructor certifications.
