Jane lives on the South Coast of NSW with her husband and three children. Her middle child, who has physical and sensory disabilities, has brought her to the world of advocacy. Jane realised that her vision for a holistic approach to life for him wasn’t as straightforward as it was for her other two children and many barriers were being put in his way. Having been affiliated with Family Advocacy, studying Social Role Valorisation (SRV) and pursuing an inclusive and ordinary life for all three children, Jane joined the Family Advocacy Management Committee in 2017. Jane previously served on the Board of FOCAS Shoalhaven for over three years.
