Jane was inspired to start HAPI Foundation after seeing the results of how healthy clean living can change your life. Jane has always been a foodie and knew that what goes in really matters. She began vegetable gardening at home with her two children and husband and shared her knowledge by helping her children's schools plant vegetable gardens. Following a career in real estate and business, she became determined to channel her passion for healthy living into working to help others. She received her business degree from USC and then obtained a certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell. Jane has taught and shared her love of cooking and gardening to her daughters and friends.
