I'm Jane

TO KNOW ME IS TO LOVE ME OR HATE ME.

My professional life has been a whirlwind of fun and interesting jobs which have made me a Jane of all Trades.

Most people recognize me as the caring, loving, intelligent, creative, Jane of all Trades that I am

However, along with that person a slightly loud, and obnoxious dork shows up at times. But Marilyn Monroe said it best, "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best." I rarely have a mean bone in my body and am always trying to help those around me, sometimes to my own detriment (both personally and professionally).  I have a very hard time learning when to just say "No". Especially when it comes to the people I care about. I guess that is also what lead me to be a shopping addict, not being able to say "No".

Dr. HindieKlien from Psychology Today labeled the particular obsessive-compulsive disorder, ‘oniomania’, also known as compulsive shopping (in case you’re wondering you don’t pronounce it like the vegetable.
