Jane attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in English and Anthropology in 2010.

Jane’s strategy for your case is to provide an empathetic and compassionate ear to listen to all aspects of the situation, and then fully leverage not only her own experience, but also the experience of those around her to obtain the best possible outcome for each and every client.
