Mrs Jane Luzio

Jane grew up in Cambridge, the daughter of a graduate of Jesus College and granddaughter of a graduate of Trinity. She taught classical ballet from 1965-2002. Her first office job was Master’s Secretary, St Edmund’s College for Canon Sweeney, the Master. She brought up three children as a single parent, held down several part-time jobs, completed a Women into Management course with The Open University and ended her career as a Senior Administrator in the Department of Engineering, retiring in 2013. Retirement was short-lived!

She was appointed Director of Newcomers & Visiting Scholars in October 2015, a post she still holds. She is an Independent Custody Visitor at Parkside Police Station, a voluntary role she has held for 11 years. Her hobby, playing music for Morris Dancers, on a melodeon or button accordion, is reflected in the portrait of her husband, which hangs in the dining hall.
