She researched, wrote, edited and produced the highly regarded and award-winning public affairs program San Diego Update. The Advertising Council recognized Jane for her continued commitment to effecting positive social change. While Jane's network continued to expand, so did her desire to grow her own business. She branched out into the world of voice over with a home studio in the 1990s. She is currently the voice of Cartier, Ferragamo and Michigan State University's program RELAX-Alternatives to Anger.

In 2010 her natural curiosity led her to expand her knowledge and business again, by including marketing and social media for businesses and non-profits. When anyone asks her what she does for a living she responds; "I connect inspired people with one another, especially those with a desire to help others." Helping to elevate other people is one of her personal passions.

She has traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless on a humanitarian mission in 2011. Recently, she traveled to Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo.
