The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
— John 10:10 (AMP)

Jane was born in 1956 in rural Western Pennsylvania and moved to Southern California in 1985, where she worked in restaurants for nearly twenty years. She has been in the vacation rental business since 2004. She loves the beach, God, her church, and her two little rescue dogs, Toby and Jovi. Also right up there on Jane's list are pizza, ice cream and good wine. Jane is happiest when she's creating - whether cooking and baking, gardening, taking photos, or doing ceramics or crafts. Put a glue gun in her hand and she's a happy camper. Her best and most beautiful creation is her twenty-eight year old daughter, Ariana Longley, vice president of a non-profit organization in Irvine. Jane loves jewelry, particularly earrings. She has about 100 pairs, mostly thrift shop finds. Some of Jane's favorite subjects are God's creations, flowers, and quirky things not seen every day. She despises litter and makes it a point to pick up at least one piece of trash each day. She has raised thousands of dollars over the past several years for her church's food truck ministry by recycling cans and bottles donated by friends, neighbors, and co-workers. The Red Cross is a favorite charity; Jane is an eight-gallon blood donor.  Her @seejaneclimb Instagram account features photos she takes on her exploits.  A Mini driver, she posts photos of the many, many Minis she encounters on her other Instagram page @manymanyminis. Time is Jane's worst enemy - her goal in life is to pack as much living into each day as possible. She will continue to climb tall buildings as long as she's able.
