As Public Affairs Manager, Jane’s ability to make personal connections, coupled with her natural gift of bringing people together, make her a perfect fit for the S360 Hawaii office.
Before joining S360, Jane worked in both government and regulated industries. As the Chief of Staff for the former Hawaii County Council Chair, she worked to draft and successfully pass tobacco legislation raising the age of tobacco sales in Hawaii County to age 21 – the first county to do so in the State of Hawaii.
In her role as Community Consultant for Hawaii Electric Light Company (HELCO), Jane developed, implemented and coordinated community and educational outreach programs across the island. Her vibrant, engaging personality and understanding of her community made her the ideal representative for the Utility.
As a very active community volunteer, Jane serves on various boards and commissions, including as the Hawaii Island Commissioner to the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, current president of the Kailua Village Business Improvement District, West Hawaii Community Forums and serves as an officer on the Friends of NELHA (Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority) board.
Jane earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education from Cebu State University in the Philippines and immigrated to Hawaii in 1994. While her daughter Rachel and son Isaac give her the greatest joy in life, she enjoys cooking, walking and anything on the Hallmark Channel. Though calm and composed by nature, she is actively working up the courage to go skydiving, to check off just one item on a very long bucket list.
