Jane Smith, Deputy Director

Jane comes to Harper’s by way of Willamette Week where she first caught wind of Harper’s Playground through Give!Guide, Willamette Week’s annual philanthropic effort which benefits 150 local nonprofits.

A graduate of Linfield College where she spent some time on the softball field, Jane is a huge advocate of play on all levels, she has a passion for making children’s lives better and has volunteered with Children’s Cancer Association and Girls on the Run.

Jane can be found walking through the original Harper’s Playground at Arbor Lodge Park with her boyfriend, on a run, at a concert, on a ski slope or hanging with her cats.

Watching and listening to kids play is so inspiring and uplifting. I am thrilled to help bring inclusive play to all children and am beyond lucky to join the Harper’s Playground staff.
