, STEM-UP NetworkJanet Sebastian, Commercial Manager for North and South America, Proviron Inc. Chemical Manufacturer

Graduated from a 5-year cooperative education program at Drexel University in 1990 with a BS in Materials Engineering.  During that time I was the President of the SWE (Society of Women in Engineering) for my college.

My career began in applications engineering and has progressed along the way into sales, business development, and commercial development.

I have spent 30 years in the chemical industry working inside industrial plants seeing how things are made.  This has been the highlight of my career in engineering.  My current role is working with companies to develop ways to apply bio-based products for a more sustainable future in plastics.

I am married for 24 years, have 2 step daughters (and a grandchild on the way) and a son who is in his 2nd year at Penn State.

I love to craft and work on my spiritual life.
