“I just do things and enjoy the moment!” commented Janet Brown to Ambergris Today as we chatted with her. To everyone on the island she is known as Jan and to her surprise, the staff of Ambergris Today visited her on an early Thursday morning to honor her with the coveted title of Person of the Year for 2010.

“I don’t deserve this,” she humbly commented. “There are other Sanpedranos more deserving.” But Ambergris Today begs to differ because for a long time we have seen Jan hard at work in many community project, fundraisers, organizations and island rallies; Jan Brown is always there.

With only six and a half years as a resident of San Pedro, Jan has done and accomplished so much more than most retirees to our island and even some locals. She got her first international stamp on her passport when she came to Belize for the first time over 16 years ago. Since then she had not stopped visiting San Pedro on a regular basis. Today she is a few months away of obtaining her residency; something she is very excited about.

It was not until 2004 when she took a leap of faith and packed her things back home in Clear Lake Houston, Texas and moved to San Pedro after she had purchased the popular Pier Lounge bar. Back in the US she was an active businesswoman, including office manager of the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, board member of the cancer society and coordinator of the central committee of the Clear Lake Tourism Board which also coordinated their Christmas Boat Parade.
