Jane Gaffney

Communications & Media Assistant

Jane Gaffney

Jane started with Students on Ice as an Intern in October 2015, since then she has graduated to her current role as Communications and Media Assistant.

Jane has a degree in Communications Media & Film from the University of Windsor. While enrolled in her undergrad Jane played on the varsity hockey team, spent half a year living in Sweden, and learned to like the taste of coffee. Her current academic interests lie at the intersection between education and media literacy as she is pursuing her Masters of Education at the University of Ottawa.

Before coming to SOI Jane held a variety of jobs ranging from leading youth on 12 day canoe trips along coast of Nova Scotia, to working as a research assistant for physicians focusing in mental health as well as in palliative care.

You can often find Jane listening to—or raving about—her new favourite podcast. In addition to her love of audio stories, Jane has recently developed an obsession love for soup. Jane experiments making a different soup every week and she is always open to new soup suggestions.
