As interim CFO since 2019, Jane has been instrumental in ushering the Foundation through the successful and smooth transition of its President/CEO and will continue this support during our search for a new CFO/COO in 2021. Her duties as CFO include developing annual budgets, accounting, financial reporting and analysis, cash flow forecasting, tax reporting, and staff support to the Investment Committee. In addition, Jane is responsible for the human resource function of the Foundation, overseeing its first new hire in seven years and creation of the position of Executive Assistant/Office Manager.

Jane holds a BS in accounting from Boston College and has significant and progressive industry and public accounting experience for non-profit, privately held and public organizations. Working for more than twenty years as an outsourced CFO or project leader, she has consulted with clients on organizational changes; improvement and documentation of effective accounting policies and procedures; cash management; compliance; cost reduction; and strategic direction. Jane serves on the board of directors of Care for Real, a food and clothing pantry in Chicago. She resides in Chicago with her two college-aged daughters and is enjoying the empty nest (most of the time)!
