In 1994, Jane left the corporate world to write and self-publish The Dogs’ Guide To New York City With Jack The City Dog, the first canine guidebook of its kind. Serving as her own publicist, the book garnered remarkable national coverage in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Good Housekeeping, and on NBC’s Today Show. Impressed with these results, others started calling her and asking for the name of her publicist. Upon learning Jane was “the publicist,” they hired her.

She holds a BA in Journalism Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina and a Masters in International Business from Thunderbird. On behalf of the Advertising Educational Foundation, Jane was a touring member of the Ambassador Program Speakers Corp for many years.
