A lifelong learner, Jane credits her father for her quest to discover more. Even though he failed his 11+ exam, he was determined to achieve his aims. Through dedicated study at night school, her father qualified as a chartered surveyor, ending his long career as Lancashire County Land Agent. He instilled a belief in Jane that education, in its broadest sense, is one of the greatest gifts possible. And this is a major factor in the work that Jane does to inspire young people to reach their potential.
