Jane is originally from Princeton, New Jersey and currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia. She is very familiar with the Semester at Sea program and excited to sail for the fourth time this fall. Jane first sailed as a student in Fall 2004, returning to the ship to work as a caregiver for faculty/staff children on both the Fall 2009 and Fall 2011 voyages. In addition to her experience on board, she has worked as both a full-time and part-time caregiver for children in the Charlottesville and Princeton areas.
Jane has a Journalism and Media Studies degree from Rutgers University and has worked as a reporter and an editor at two Charlottesville-area newspapers and, most recently, as an editor at a Charlottesville parenting magazine. She has a passion for writing, photography, enjoying and creating art, exploring outside and discovering new places.
