About me

Industry Education
Occupation development officer
Location West St. Paul, Minnesota, United States
Introduction I'm known for my laugh and enjoy sharing it often. At least once a month 1) Someone calls me Jane. This bothered me so much in college that I wouldn't answer professors when they called me Jane. Now it makes me grin. It's an honest error (just think about my full name - Jill Kane). 2) Someone tells me I look familar and asks if we've met before. 3) I cry. For a variety of reasons. 4) I do something completely new. Now the brass tacks. Born, raised, schooled and still reside in Minnesota. BA in psychology, U of M, Morris. MA in organizational leadership, St. Kate's. Presently work at the U of M, College of Liberal Arts. Always enjoyed creating - drawing, painting, printmaking, crafts, pottery. Enjoy working with people when they are at their best. After ten years of thinking development wasn't a career that I wanted, I realized the heart of the profession is working with people when they are at their best. I enjoy traveling alone, with friends, and with people I just met. I am free to manage my own life. . . and that is just where I need to be. Strive to live my best in the present.
