My name is Jane Anderson and I am the Program and Compliance Director here at CHOICES, Inc. I have been working in the field of child welfare for over 15 years in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. I have been a foster care case manager, in home services worker, and have worked with developmentally disabled adults. I have also been a supervisor where I oversaw foster care case managers and for the past 8 years I have been working as a program director, in which I oversaw foster care and adoption, outpatient mental health and independent living programs for an agency similar to CHOICES. I have a passion for assisting children and families through being informed about laws, policies and legislature that affect how we serve children and families. I enjoy using that knowledge to positively impact the systems that serve our children and families. I believe I bring a unique perspective to the table with my knowledge of direct service provision coupled with broader systems knowledge.
