Years ago, Jane's 8th-grade English teacher launched her life's passion with a simple comment: "Great writer!" Those words inspired a voracious appetite for the written word and led Jane to pursue two degrees in English — as well as a professional path that has always featured communications as a major responsibility.
Her broad experience in the university, technology, healthcare, consumer products and nonprofit fields has graced Jane with an unmatched ability to quickly read an audience and deliver the most effective messages in the most appropriate formats. She has transformed both vague and insipid concepts into compelling print and digital content — including white papers, newsletter articles, product sheets, direct mail campaigns, story pitches, advertising copy and everything in between. She has been dubbed "best writer in the house" by the CEO of an Ivy-affiliated hospital; her marketing campaign to launch a new outdoor product earned T-shirt of the Year kudos from industry blog The Piton.
While pursuing her master's degree at Boston College, Jane instructed two semester-long courses in effective writing for first-year students — a process she particularly enjoyed. She has served on the New Hampshire Breast & Cervical Cancer Program's marketing advisory committee; Y-USA's national brand advisory committee; and is a past member of the Public Relations Society of America (Yankee chapter) and the New England Society for Healthcare Communications.
When she's not working with clients, Jane makes messes (and the occasional masterpiece) in the kitchen with local food from farmers she loves. She also runs, bikes, hikes, works at Nordic skiing and generally gets active outside as much as possible; tries not to cheat on the NY Times crossword puzzle; and roots for the Red Sox. She lives with her partner Rob, who inspires her with his year-round commitment to bike commuting (among other things).
