No stranger to the world of nonprofits, Janet has a diverse history of nonprofit management and board development experience. Currently, she serves Project C.U.R.E. as the Director of National Procurement and is responsible for reaching out to manufacturers, distributors and medical facilities in order to secure the product donations which will ultimately help Project C.U.R.E. save lives in under-resourced countries. Prior to accepting this position, Janet was the Director of Operations in Houston. Under her direction, Project C.U.R.E. shipments at that location dramatically increased and the location grew to ship three to four cargo containers each month. These donations average $1.4 million each month. Janet has an extensive entrepreneurial background as well as professional experience in sales and marketing management. Janet's professional experience ranges from large to small corporations, having worked with Fortune 500 companies, as well as a number of privately held corporations. Just a few of her experiences include founding a successful, community-based, volunteer tutoring program in one of Texas’ largest school districts, being a media representative for the national infertility organization, Resolve, and managing the largest, longstanding advocacy group for gifted education in the state of Texas.
An active member of the nonprofit community both locally and globally, Mrs. Thomason serves on the San Jacinto College Biomedical Advisory Committee and is a member of Partnership for Quality Medical Donations, a unique alliance of nonprofit and corporate organizations committed to bringing measurable health impact to under-served and vulnerable people through active engagement with global partners and local communities.
Janet and her husband Terry are thirty-year residents of Houston and empty nesters as their two children attend Baylor College of Medicine and The Pennsylvania State University.
