Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Jane is also a long distance hiker, rock climber, and has downhill skied throughout the Cascade Mountain Range. When she is not enjoying the outdoors, Jane likes to explore new music on her piano or ukulele. In a desperate effort to avoid tripping over her own two feet, Jane is trained in ballet, tap, and jazz. In her urban garden, she grows vegetables (tomatoes, peppers, and carrots), herbs (basil, parsley, cilantro, mint, etc.), flowers, and hopes to one day earn her Gardner Scout Badge. A crazy cat lady and proud supporter of the "Adopt, Don't Shop" movement, she rescued her adorable fur baby Liona.
