Jann brings a long history of advocating for children as a member of the Clackamas and Oregon Commissions on Children & Families, serving as chair of several committees and vice chair of the state commission. In 2000 she worked with stakeholders across her community to found the Lake Oswego Asset Builders Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to building public awareness of children’s issues. There she was able to garner the supportof the broader community and to write for and secure funding for a much needed middle school after school program. After a stint as a policy analyst for the boards of the Oregon state special schools, Jann is happy to put her efforts and knowledge to an organization bringing the positive power of experiential learning to the community. Jann is a member of the Oregon State Bar, a graduate of Lewis & Clark Law School and the University of California, Berkeley. Jann is happiest out of doors, on or in the water whenever possible.
