Jane was born in Toronto and remains a Canadian citizen, but Chicago is her adopted home. Her career aspirations started at the age of 8; she and her dad were playing with Legos, and she asked what you call someone who builds buildings. He replied “an architect”, and from that moment on Jane has followed this dream.
Believing there’s never one way to solve a problem, she dives in to each project to understand the real issues. She is hands-on, keeping projects on track by rallying the team to reach common goals.
When initially laying out the pieces and trying to make sense of a project’s needs, she loves figuring out how it will all come together – even if it’s not apparent right away. Then comes the enormous effort by the team, and, eventually, the moment she knows that she and the team have zeroed in on the right solution. This is her greatest satisfaction.
