Originally from Oxford, Jane trained at Cardiff university qualifying in 1988. Her first optometry job was with D&A Cardiff where she learnt to speak Welsh in her last year at university and on leaving D&A she headed up to north Wales for 4 years. However, her heart was still in Cardiff and so she came back down south in 1993 where she’s stayed ever since.
