Beginner, starting out
I initially modelled when I was in my teens under my maiden name
Jane Almond just for a few local plus sized shops wanting to promote
I also was entered for a modelling competition a number and came second
in my age range for a competition with Womens Own and Marshall Ward where I won£500.00 to spend in the catalogue and also got introduced to PHA extras Agency in Manchester and ended up being a TV extra in things like Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Shameless, Holly Oaks, DFS ads and many more.
In March 2011 I was asked to model for an Evans University Focus
Group focusing on size perception and the retailer themselves ( ie how
things could be improved) which was very interesting.
That sort of led to me entering the Face of Rossendale competition 2011
and I was amazed to find myself one of the ten finalists.
I also did the catwalk for Evans and Butterfly at Liverpool Fashion Week.

April 2012 I modeled for a new online retailer called Style Personified.
