Director of Development
Jane is always thinking of the big picture and how she can create the best marketing, communications, and/or development initiatives for an organization’s success. Jane is most thankful for her education and professional opportunities. Through her passion, hard work, and strong ethics, Jane has been selected for some of the top companies while serving in the following roles:
Jane’s passion for her organization’s mission is undeniable and she will go to great lengths to achieve success. This fundraising dynamo leaped off tall buildings, not once but twice, for “Over the Edge”—an international charitable giving, rappelling initiative — while raising thousands of dollars and rallying her community to benefit those facing the opioid epidemic. She’s also turned a gun shop into a teen center gaining national accolades through the Make A Difference Day Award.
The over 10-year running Women In Leadership Development conference is also one of Jane’s most notable creations along with her Gannon University colleagues. This professional development was wildly originated with the intent for networking, national speakers, and entrepreneurial table displays that showcase and empower women of all faces.
Jane’s foundation and passion has always been her writing, where she is now working as a grant writer to secure funding for the global media company Free To Choose® Network as director of development. Jane is also very loyal to her community and searches for that next challenging philanthropic adventure.
Jane has two daughters — Becca, senior at Boston University, and Emma, junior, PA Cyber — and two furry friends, Siamese cats Macy and Chloe.
