Finance and Compliance
After undertaking an advanced Diploma of Business in the 1980s, Jane was offered an Executive Traineeship with the not-for-profit Odyssey International Inc. in New York, USA. Managing NGOs in America, Australia and New Zealand, gave Jane a sound foundation to the intricacies of business and the not-for-profit sector. Upon her return to Australia, Jane became involved with the Australian Girls Choir, which her mother was operating as a sole trader. As Finance Director, Jane established a corporate structure within which the growing organisation could flourish.
It was a long-term aim of Jane’s to take the AGC ideals and teaching methods to children across Australia. The renaming of the company as Australian School of Performing Arts and establishment of ASPA Education and Girls from Oz is the realisation of these dreams. Jane completed a Bachelor of Science (Nursing) in 2016 in order to undertake short term contracts in remote Australia. As a director of g-oz Jane has utilised her business skills and experience to guide the financial management of the organisation.
