Jan Roberts has lived in the WW valley for two years after spending most of her life in the mission field of Africa and Indonesia. She’s a graduate of Walla Walla University with a nursing degree which was very helpful while living overseas. Making and listening to great music is a passion that runs deeply in her soul. She is currently an accompanist at Whitman College, Walla Walla University, Rogers Adventist School and John Sager Middle School and mentors Freshmen students at Walla Walla University.

Even though she lived overseas, she was able to continue with her musical pursuits and has organized and performed in more than 40 concerts thus maintaining her piano skills while raising three children and teaching many to play the piano and enjoy music too.
