Meet business expert and strategic superstar Jane Schmitz. She is on the ball when it comes to managing finances and guiding our business operations. In fact, we like to think of Jane as our resident switch-hitter because she helps with a variety of functions, from accounting to human resources and more.
With years of experience in computer design, programming, accounting and human resources, she really is a “Jane” of all trades. After supporting the business efforts of companies in the manufacturing, architectural and hospitality industries, Jane is excited to broaden her knowledge and explore the communications industry further.
Prior to Mindful Kreative, Jane began her professional career as a computer systems analyst and consultant at Alcoa. After 18 years as the Controller of the architectural firm of MacLachlan, Cornelius & Filoni, Inc. she accepted the position of Controller of Shannopin Country Club, where she was responsible for accounting, finance, human resources and even IT. She continues to serve as a tax professional for H&R Block on a seasonal basis.
Jane holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Iowa State University.
Jane has previously dabbled in communications – blogging for conferences and pulling together books for nonprofit organizations. She looks forward to growing this interest to support what she calls “a fantastic team of highly talented professionals who seem to be thriving under the direction of an extremely supportive owner.”
When she isn’t hard at work, you can find Jane playing with her granddaughter or spending quality time with her husband, three daughters, their families and multiple dogs. She also enjoys hobbies like gardening, cross stitch and porcelain painting in her free time.
Two to three words that describe her best: Ask my daughters. They would give great answers!
Personal Motto: Learn something new every day.
