Janet Dodd has been a member of First United Methodist Church since January of 1990 when she joined with her family. She joined the staff as interim youth director at 1st church in 1992 after having been a dental hygienist for 20 years. This interim position lasted 3 years with much love, fun and adventure with the youth. In 1995 she moved over to become the Contributions Secretary and Programing Coordinator and in 1998 moved into the position of Church Administrator and Assistant to the Senior Pastor. Being raised a Methodist and always being involved in the church this has been a very rewarding second career but more importantly it has always felt like taking care of a large family and serving the church wherever possible.
Janet is married to Ed Dodd, who also came to the ministry later in life. Ed answered the call to ministry a few years after joining First Methodist and they have been married 24 years. Janet has a son Leslie Weiler that lives in Austin, Texas and is a graphics art designer, and a stepdaughter Shana and her husband James who live in McKinney and take care of a gorgeous granddaughter, Alexis Nadine. Janet loves spending time at the beach (any beach, but especially Florida beaches) with the family, reading and movies.
