Jan Upton has been a Type II Search and Rescue volunteer for five years.   Her training partner, Annie, a yellow Labrador, was doing well until health problems prevented her from continuing.  Jan enjoys providing support for other dog teams and loves map and compass exercises.

Jan also is a volunteer puppy coach for Autism Service Dogs of America and plays cello with the Hillsboro Community Symphony Orchestra.  She serves on the board of Hillsboro Community Youth Choir.  She is married with three grown children.  Bicycling, hiking and gardening are the other loves of her life.
