Jane joined the Free Press in March 2017, after an early career that saw her reporting for The Wall Street Journal, The Toronto Star, and The Canadian Press. As a freelancer, her work has appeared on Vice and Daily Xtra.

Jane is the author of Ashton’s Second Act: How, Post-Stroke, An Actor Learned To Play Himself Again, an eBook available on iTunes. She has an MFA in narrative nonfiction writing from Baltimore’s Goucher College and a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Carleton University in Ottawa.

When not researching, reporting or writing, Jane plays soccer, hockey, and ultimate or goes on adventures with her dog Charlie.
