Face of Altru – Jane Loscheider

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
-Confucius

Jane Loscheider of Altru’s Occupational Therapy has heeded this advice. She loves what she does. She is a Face of Altru.

Her words echo compassion for her patients and co-workers. “I love my job. The great thing is that I come to work and get paid to do what I do. That’s a really great gift. I love the patients and the variety of my day.”

This go-getter with three kids, two cats and one dog doesn’t stop with devoting 100 percent to her job at Altru. She’s also heavily involved with Spin for Kids, an annual fundraiser that strives to provide medical assistance to families of children with special needs.

“I’ve been able to work with kids that have been direct recipients of Spin for Kids. I’ve helped kids with spina bifida, and without these funds, may not be able to drive. It’s very rewarding.”

With a kind heart and positive attitude, Jane exemplifies what it means to live our mission.

Jane’s role model is her co-worker. Who inspires you to work hard and be the best version of yourself?  Drop us a comment.

  1. WAHOO!! I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW INSTRUMENTAL JANE WAS IN ENSURING THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS OF OUR MOM’S LIFE WAS COMFORTABLE. MOM WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ALS AND JANE WAS HER GUARDIAN ANGEL. JANE’S UNDERSTANDING OF ALS, THE NEEDS OF OUR MOM, AND HER INFINITE KNOWLEDGE OF RESOURCES AND AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT WAS A GIFT TO US. BUT MOST OF ALL SHE WAS OUR ‘BACKBONE’, OUR SOUNDING BOARD; SHE MADE HERSELF AVAILABLE TO MY FAMILY AT ALL HOURS. WHAT A SPECIAL PERSON!! MY FAMILY WAS, AND IS, SO BLESSED TO HAVE HER IN OUR LIVES!!

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Cheryl! We think Jane exemplifies Altru’s mission, which is why we chose to feature her as a Face of Altru. Thank you for sharing your personal story of how Jane touched your mom’s life.
