JANE NGUYEN | NAAAP Orlando | Vice President


Jane discovered NAAAP in her home state of Oklahoma when she and her husband, Dave Tran, were asked to be part of a Professionals Panel for the UNITY Mixer hosted by the Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations (UNAVSA). NAAAP OKC had just started and were there as partners! Shortly after moving to Orlando, Jane became a Board Member of NAAAP Orlando in March 2019, right when Orlando had the opportunity to host the National Leadership Academy (NLA) for all the NAAAP leaders across North America. 

Jane’s love for leadership ignited when she joined the Vietnamese Student Association in college. She was on the board for 2 years as General Secretary and President. She also founded an interest group, Asian Women Student Association (AWSA) in 2003 which led to chartering the Largest International Asian-Interest Sorority, alpha Kappa Delta Phi -Chi Chapter at the University of Oklahoma (OU) in 2005. In that same semester, Jane was voted Miss Congeniality at the Mr. & Miss Asian OU Pageant. 

She graduated from the University of Oklahoma (GO SOONERS!) with a B.S.in Zoology Biomedical Sciences. She worked in the optometry field and later returned back to school to pursue her B.A. in Graphic Design with a minor in Illustration at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO). Jane has won several advertising and graphic design awards and acquired competitive internship positions at the NBA Oklahoma City Thunder and Saxum Strategic Communications. She still had the need to lead, so she successfully rejuvenated the dying graphic design student organization, AIGA UCO and served as President for 1 year. As a student, she also took the General Secretary role for the State Chapter, AIGA Oklahoma for 2 years and moved up to Vice President for an additional year. After graduation, she co-founded a design & branding company and was an adjunct instructor for Design in Global Cultures to University students.

Janes enjoys being a Disney nerd and exploring food and the world with her husband Dave. She loves the simplest moments like cuddling with her two yorkies, Pablo & Pixel or warm, soft chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven.
