Janice Romanosky

Janice is an energy efficiency native, raised in the ’70s in a home with solar hot water, foam insulation, and a dad who knew his way around the local home improvement store.

She founded Pando Alliance in 2010 as a sole proprietor, singlehandedly performing all program inspections and testing in the early years. Drawing on 20 years of management experience in the home center industry, she has integrated strong client relation skills and sound business sense with her enthusiasm for sustainable building practices. Janice’s diverse education includes extensive studies in business, architecture, and building science.

Her credentials have included LEED AP BD+C, LEED for Homes Green Rater, BPI Building Analyst, NGBS Green Verifier, and HERS Rater.
