Jane has been with Arcadia University since the inception of our New Zealand programs in July 2001. Since joining our staff, she has seen our number of participants increase significantly in New Zealand. Part of this can be attributed to her enormous popularity with students. A native New Zealander who is beloved by our program participants for her ebullient and caring nature, Jane has thorough knowledge of the higher education system in New Zealand and prior to joining Arcadia provided learning support and pastoral care for students at UNITEC Institute of Technology in Auckland. Jane also spent 4 years as a lecturer in English language at Basel University in Switzerland. She received her B.A. from the University of Auckland in 1984 and her M.A. in Applied Linguistics from Victoria University of Wellington in 1991.
