Jane, who joins as the Texas Highways Events Calendar (pdf) editor and a co-editor of the Texas State Travel Guide (pdf), has a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri and comes with experience as a freelance writer and editor contributing to publications and websites such as Travel + Leisure, Roadfood.com, the Austin American-Statesman and Texas Highways.

“For years Texas Highways has inspired me to get on the road and explore my home state, so I’m thrilled to join this award-winning team driven by such a compelling state. Frankly, there’s no other place I’d rather be,” she says.
She definitely has caught the traveling bug and looks forward to exploring much more of Texas.
