Jane grew up in the mountains of Colorado and went to the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she obtained degrees in Molecular Biology and English Literature. After college, she worked for two years as a research assistant before deciding to pursue a Master’s degree in Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. She spent the next two years working on health and education projects in China. Seeing the impact she could make as a physician, she decided to go back to Colorado for medical school (where she could romp in the mountains with her nieces and nephews in between classes). Throughout medical school, Jane continued global health work, first completing an internship with UNICEF in Bihar, India. Then, between her 3rd and 4th year, she took a year to work on public health projects in Haiti. She fell in love with the Haitians, which was one of many reasons that she was drawn to the Med-Peds program in Miami. In addition, she was impressed by the diverse patients, the amazing residents, and eccentricity of Miami—all reasons she loves being here for residency!
