Jayne serves as Sealantro’s Chief Elf, a role which encompasses her many responsibilities from marketing, accounting, and dish washing to vegan cook and pastry chef.
A former travel magazine publisher, Jayne left the corporate world in 2004 when her unhealthy lifestyle on the road took its toll.

Locally, Jayne has found that her knowledge of traveling and dining out frequently on the road has proven invaluable to her clients who enjoy part time residency during the Treasure Coast’s busy social season. They continue to work with Jayne from their summer residences too thanks to the wonders of modern technology. Jayne has worked with clients in South Africa, the UK, Italy, Germany and Australia.
Under her nom de plume, Jayne McAllister, Jayne is the author of Mile High & Healthy: The Frequent Traveler’s Roadmap to Eating, Exercise, Energy and a Balanced Life (Story Farm, November 2015), which was hailed by Forbes.com as “A breakthrough book (…) taking the reader on a variety of journeys discussing everything from the physiological impacts of travel to detailed analysis of how travelers can wrest control of the chaos that constitutes today’s business trip.“.
