Jane Green


Jane Green finally tired of her daily 100-mile round-trip commute to her federal government job as an expert on international issues and is now spending her days enjoying all that Annapolis and the surrounding area have to offer.  Jane was raised in Indiana, received a B.A. in political science from Indiana University, and came east to earn a master’s degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.  She and her family moved to Annapolis in 1986.  Jane and her husband, Tom, have two children, both married, three grandchildren, two dogs, and two granddoodles.  Tom is the founder and president of DesignAmerica, an aerospace software development company.  As an avid genealogist, Jane discovered that she was not the first of her family to live in Anne Arundel County—that honor goes to a 7th great-grandfather.
