A recent empty nester, Jane fills her newfound free time with needlework, yoga, and enjoying the peace and quiet at her lake house.  If you catch her out on the town – she might be dancing at a country music concert, or cheering on her favorite baseball teams, the Chicago White Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals!
