Jane joined OzGREEN in May 2016 and brings a varied career history including community development and engagement, organisational capacity building, research, bookkeeping and project and event management. Jane’s most recent and long-standing role was as a Sector Development Project Officer with the Queensland Council of Social Service where she supported organisations from the community service sector and contributed advice to government stakeholders on issues affecting the sector and individuals impacted by poverty and disadvantage.
Jane moved to Bellingen in 2015 seeking to combine her professional life with her personal passion for sustainability. Jane has a passion for building the economic, social and environmental development of communities, organisations and individuals through harnessing and building on the inherent strengths of those involved. This passion sits perfectly with OzGREEN’s work, in particular its flagship program, Youth Leading The World. Through her role at OzGREEN, Jane provides administrative and event management support to the organisation and to the Bellingen Shire Learning Alliance, an alliance of Bellingen-based organisations working collectively and independently to create a culture of lifelong learning for sustainability and ecological balance.
