Jane fell in love with the Pacific Islands during a 3 year stint in Fiji with her family, where she worked with the Fiji Red Cross Society. She found the sunsets breathtaking, the mangoes unbelievable and the people generous and warm. She was inspired by their ability to smile in the face of adversity and bounce back from hardship. ‘a Girl & her world’ was born when a friend in Fiji needed help getting her daughter to high school, the rest is history. Jane believes that where you are born or who you were born to, should not determine your opportunity to flourish in life! She is committed to making a difference in the lives of girls and their families in the Pacific islands and learns so much from walking alongside them.
Jane has a background in International Health and (in her day job) currently manages programs in the Pacific and South East Asia for a Sydney based Relief and Development agency.
