Jane is married and has twin teenagers. She and her husband make their home on 14 acres in Hanover County where they enjoy their children, three dogs, and their large vegetable garden.

Laura Greenleaf, Stewardship & Outreach Coordinator
Laura grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley of Clarke County, the inspiration for her lifelong enthusiasm for conservation. Laura has a BSW from James Madison University (where she indulged her love of literature and writing with a minor in English) and an MPA from George Mason University where she focused on environmental policy.
Before her 2007 move to Richmond, Laura made her home in Fauquier County's Crooked Run Valley. She served on the Board of Citizens for Fauquier County and worked for the Virginia League of Conservation Voters following a social work career devoted to child welfare. In 2005 Laura assisted her parents with recording an easement on the land where she grew up.
Laura lives in the City of Richmond near the James River with her husband and son. As a volunteer, she is a certified Virginia Master Naturalist and co-leads the Virginia chapter of the International Dark-Sky Association.
