Jana has been a plain language advocate throughout her communications career.
She began as a daily newspaper reporter and editor. When she retired in 2013, she was the press officer for an office of U.S. government scientists working with climate change and other issues.
Through her business, Press Here, Jana continues that work, training scientists to use plain language when talking about their work to non-scientists. She has also trained U.S. government employees to comply with the Plain Writing Act of 2010.
Jana enjoys reading detective fiction from the 1930s to 1960s and traveling with her husband, a cultural anthropologist.
