Jane grew up in Monmouth County, and other than a brief stint in Iowa to earn a degree in English from Grinnell College, has lived in New Jersey ever since. Jane learned to love God growing up in a devout Catholic home, and received saving faith in her early 20’s.

Jane has worked with children in various capacities over the years as an elementary teacher, special education aide, tutor, piano teacher, and Sunday School teacher. She has been Hope’s Director of Children’s Ministries since 2014.

Jane and her husband Jason love hiking and camping and trying to keep up with their four grown daughters. They are grateful for their family at Hope!
