Allamong, Jane E.
I have been active with EWI since 1984.  I was a representative for my firm, Girls Incorporated of Omaha for 30 years.  I retired in 2014 and moved back to my home area in Pennsylvania.  I am now an active sustaining member with the Lehigh Valley Chapter.

I am a Penn Stae grad and have been married to my husband, Ray, since 1979.  I enjoy reading, needlework, geneology research and biking.

In my 30+ years with EWI, I have held several chapter board positions including president twice and treasurer at least 4 times.  I have also served on several corporate committees and was a membership advisor.
