Jane is a school psychologist by training and spent much of her career working in K12 settings. Her interest in suicide prevention developed during the years she served as the crisis intervention counselor for Rockingham County Public Schools in Virginia.

In 2005, Jane became the director of the Central Shenandoah Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative, which in turn led to the creation of the Campus Suicide Prevention Center of Virginia, where Jane formerly served as director. In that role, Jane provided suicide prevention resources, training and consultation for strategic planning to colleges and universities across the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Jane earned a master’s degree in educational psychology from Bucknell University and a Ph.D. in school psychology from Syracuse University. For down time, Jane enjoys woodworking, game nights, dinners out with friends and family, and time under the trees.
