As a former Stewardess and Purser with Pan Am through the 60s and 70s, Jane first visited Hawaii and fell in love with the island life. After marrying in Honolulu in 1970 and moving to Kona in 1971, Jane continued to fly (and commute to her mainland base) until 1976. In 1992, Jane assumed the directorship of the Ultraman World Championship Triathlon, a 3 day event that circles the Island of Hawaii, until she retired three years ago.
In the many years of doing the course around the island (with car keys!), the need for bike lanes and bike safety, as well as safe running and hiking areas are realized as a prime concern, and the goals of PATH are always at the forefront of her volunteering for PATH sponsored events. Now in her 70s, Jane continues to paddle and race internationally with Keauhou Canoe Cub.
