Jane considers herself to be a forever entrepreneur. She will happily tell you that she is a misfit and a non conformist. She is an exceptionally unique thinker. She builds her life and her business by directly leveraging from these traits. Every day Jane advocates for people who colour outside the lines for all of the right reasons and for children (and adults) who don’t fit within the cookie cutter systems that society has created. At the end of the day, Jane is a dreamer and a risk taker. She lives, laughs and earns with generosity as well as intention. She does all of this while raising three exceptional individuals, who are actively learning the art of unconventional thinking.
