Born in Tacloban City, Philippines, Janara transplanted to the US when she was seven years old. After graduating from Syracuse University in 2008, she and her husband worked at different firms in Baltimore, MD before landing in Sag Harbor. “We love the small town vibe. When we lived in Baltimore, we found ourselves always leaving the city to be in nature on the weekends. So when we came here, it was the perfect fit. You have the beach, you have hiking, you have the wineries, but you don’t drive far to get anywhere.” When she's not in the office, she loves going in adventures with her little daughter and husband or teach boxing classes at the local gym.
