Reagan and the late General Colin L. Powell. She also earned the title of Certified Speaking Professional and

Jane faced her share of "You can't do thats" in her life, thanks to the dyslexic label stamped on her early on.
But she just laughed, probably snorted, and transformed every "NO" into a "NEXT." You see, Jane believes
that humor is the WD-40 of life—it makes everything run more smoothly. Jane shows crowds how to wrestle
stress to the ground, and then high-five it out the door—all with a grin and a "watch me" attitude.

Jane journeyed from the rows of her family’s Lowcountry tomato farm to the runway of the Miss America
