She attended graduate school at the California State University of San Francisco in Communications, and later became a PhD student in Clinical Psychology at The Professional School of Psychology in San Francisco. She began her marketing career in Telecommunications in the 1980’s. Recruited to launch the first start-up in Sonoma County, Optilink Corporation, Jane became part of the Telecom Valley family of entrepreneurs led by Donald Green. This part of her career culminated in the management of the Trade Press Office for Alcatel USA. During this time, Jane managed work with such international PR firms as Burson-Marsteller NYC and Landor Advertising. She worked regularly with national and international trade analysts and press, as well as local Sonoma County publications and broadcast media.
In the early 2,000’s after the hi tech crash, Jane brought her skills to Summit Engineering – a boutique civil engineering firm known for building Napa wineries with a client list that included brands such as Bogle, Sterling, Clos de Blois, Ravenswood, Gary Farrell, John Lasseter, Francis Ford Coppola and other luminaries entering the Northern California wine industry. Jane worked with Summit to triple their revenue base, and expanded the employee count from 25 to 49 in just two years.
From there Jane was recruited into BioMed at the Santa Rosa division of Medtronic Cardiovascular. As a Marketing Communications Specialist and Project Manager, Jane developed international campaigns for the Global Stent Marketing group and the Global Angioplasty Group, developing an award-winning Sustainable Leadership campaign in 2013.
