Jane is originally from Homer, Alaska, not far from the Kilcher Homestead. She spent years as a commercial fisherwoman living a life "surrounded by storms and men." After their shared love of music landed her in the arms of Atz Lee, she left fishing and moved to the homestead.
Her unique knowledge of the seas became an instant benefit to the family and their subsistence values. Every summer she must provide her family with enough fish to last them through the long winters. Southern Alaska is home to some of the largest halibut in the world, as well as silver salmon, king salmon, red salmon, cod, trout and more. Jane targets all the available fish species in the area each and every year.
