Jane is back in the Chicagoland area after a number of years in Los Angeles, where she worked in film, television, commercials, theatre, voice-overs, interactive media events, and a host of other artistic adventures both successful and… instructional. She found her way to the Alliance through a love of teaching and a genuine passion to discover new approaches and supports for the teaching profession. She has worked as a performance coach, producer, writer, and given workshops on acting in commercials. Jane is incredibly proud of the workshop she developed and taught, designed to empower high school girls to advocate for themselves in uncomfortable situations. She is delighted to be a part of this organization and is continually inspired by its members.
