As a college professor for more than ten years, Jane has taught thousands of undergraduate and graduate students in Brazil, the U.S., and Europe. As a consultant and an entrepreneur herself, Jane has had the opportunity to live and breathe the challenges of the concepts she teaches. Because of her background, Jane is a firm believer that “to teach business to future business leaders, one must engage with the business, both in our backyard and around the world”. She has actively engaged the business community in her academic and professional research aiming to leverage and share the knowledge created together between academia and the businesses, for the business community, and for business students. Her research interests include supply chain resilience, buyer and supplier relationships, business clusters, and technologies related to the supply chain. Dr. Siegler has special collaboration with the automotive and logistics industry. She has presented her research in dozens of conferences in different parts of the world and her research has appeared in several peer-reviewed journals such as the IJPE, RAC, IJLSM, among others.
Jane is a proud mother of two young adults. Both attend Butler #GoDawgs! She loves to travel and in her free time, she enjoys running and playing golf. She went from basically sedentary in 2018 to completing five half-marathons (13.1 miles) and dozens of 5k and 10k races in 2019. She is planning to continue that challenge and to add a full marathon to her list in 2020.Curriculum Vitae
