Hello, I’m Jane, the Founder of Career Crossroads. I thrive on counselling teens and adults to realize their goals, fulfill their dreams and manage their talents through the career exploration process. I live in Surrey, BC with my husband and three sons, who are all pursuing post-secondary education at universities across Canada and beyond.
