Introducing board member Jane Laycock
Jane is an integral part of the Helping Women Period team and we are so lucky to have her! She was one of the first people to offer to help HWP and it was her friendship with the owners of MichCo that provided us the opportunity to work closely with them to source our products. She has a BA in finance from Central Michigan University and experience of over 25 years as a senior audit supervisor for the State of Michigan. Working with HWP is a natural choice for her as she has been involved in her community for years: Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, vice president and treasurer of the DeWitt Elementary PTA, and as fundraising chair and treasurer for 6 years of the DeWitt Band Boosters.
Jane’s expertise is evident in the ease (and joy) with which she handles our finances. She tracks inventory and donations, provides financial reports to the board, and all the other responsibilities that come with being a good steward of the financial aspect of HWP. Jane believes that giving low-income and homeless women access to products that would not necessarily be provided to them otherwise is an important issue, and is proud to be able to promote the mission that HWP advocates for everyday
