Jane joined Merchant McIntyre Associates with a passion for helping others find opportunities to succeed.

Jane tries to live by the Abraham Lincoln quote, “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”

At Merchant McIntyre, Jane specializes in helping new clients through the onboarding and Resource Inventory process, which helps identify funding opportunities.

Prior to joining MM, Jane interned for Grassroots Health where she worked with the Program team to recruit and train DC university student-athletes in health promotion curricula. In addition to her program experience, Jane dedicated significant time to various volunteer efforts for nonprofit organizations.

Outside of work, Jane can be found on the pickle ball court, enjoying her favorite workout class at Soul Cycle, and curled up in the corner of a DC coffee shop reading a book.
