Our Board Of Directors

 

Founder/Executive Director

Jane Moen, MS, RBT

Jane holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Communications from Rhode Island College as well as a Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from University of Wisconsin – Madison. Jane has worked in many aspects of vocational rehabilitation assessment, case management and counseling for individuals with disabilities. She has been a program director for several Connecticut youth and family service organizations with a focus on positive youth development activities including substance abuse prevention, dating violence prevention and leadership development.

Before founding A Little Compassion Inc. in the spring of 2018 Jane worked within a special needs middle school classroom in Old Lyme, CT. Jane received her RBT (Registered Behavioral Technician) certification and supported the educational, social and emotional needs of young adults impacted by autism, intellectual, developmental disabilities, ADHD, depression and anxiety.

Jane is married to Luther Moen and is the proud mother of 3 daughters who have given her the gift of teaching her how to parent, support and advocate for all young adults on their journey to adulthood. Her daughters are diverse and talented individuals who never stop being her best teachers. Being a mom has ignited her passion to change society by creating opportunities for young adults to work, play and be fulfilled, integral members of their communities. The Moen family has roots in Minnesota and Rhode Island but have proudly called Deep River, CT home for the past 16 years.
