Aunty Jane Jones is a Noongar woman. She was born in York, Western Australia and grew up in a small town called Popanyinning, in South/West of Western Australia and was educated in Narrogin.

In the nineties she decided to undertake her degree in nursing at Curtin University in Bentley as a mature age student. It took her a few years to get through and she graduated in 2001.  Jane said “Becoming a registered nurse has been most rewarding”; Jane is beginning to see beyond the infant, teenagers, young adults and adults the morbidity and mortality statistics and to understand the scope of the social, emotional, physiological and health issues that confront our clients in the communities. Jane is currently working at Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service Inc in Maddington.
