Hi, I’m Jane. I help provide welfare and wellbeing support, and work on welcome and orientation and college sports. If you have a problem with your housemates, or would like to speak to about a welfare issue, you can come to me.

I joined York as a Masters student studying Bioarchaeology and haven't left yet because I like the city and the campus so much! I was the Vice-President Academic at the Graduate Students' Association for two years, where I raised the voices of postgraduate students and fought for their needs throughout the University. I'm driven by a desire to improve the student experience, using my own experiences of University to do so. I'm a passionate advocate for empowering students and the wider community to create change, so that they can have the best experience possible at York.
