Weekly club meeting with a speaker.
Jane brings more than 25 years of business experience with Fortune 500 companies and non-profit cultural institutions including the Dallas Arboretum and the Nasher Sculpture Center. Since assuming her role in 2010, she has taken Cheekwood to a new level of heightened awareness and appreciation within the Nashville community as well as regionally and nationally.
Under her leadership, Cheekwood created a five-year strategic plan that has led to an increased focus on the gardens, including the creation of popular floral festivals Cheekwood in Bloom and Harvest at Cheekwood; campus-wide lighting of the garden that provided for the debut of Holiday LIGHTS at Cheekwood in 2015; the completion of a Cultural Landscape Report to restore the landscape’s historic integrity; and the development of a long-term Master Site Plan. Through her efforts, Cheekwood was able to host the blockbuster exhibitions, Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape and LIGHT: Bruce Munro at Cheekwood, among others. In her role as CEO, Jane also serves as the chief fundraiser for major gifts and institutional initiatives.
Jane is affiliated with the American Association of Museums and serves on the national Board of Directors of the American Public Garden Association. She is a 2012 graduate of Leadership Nashville and was named the Nashville Business Journal’s 2014 Woman of Influence Nonprofit Award Winner. Jane holds a Master’s in Business Administration from Southern Methodist University and a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Bowling Green State University.
