Jane fell in love with the Pacific Islands during a 3 year term 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. The key, she discovered, is community.
‘a Girl & her world’ was born when a friend in Fiji needed help getting her daughter to high school, the rest is history. Jane is committed to making a difference in the lives of Girls and their families in rural Fiji and learns so much from walking alongside them.
Jane has worked in the not-for-profit sector for 16 years and (in her day job) manages community development programs in the Pacific and South East Asia for a Sydney based Relief and Development agency.
Jane has a Masters of International Health.
