She was raised in Albany, Georgia by her grandparents, the late Jane Austin Taylor, a mortician, and Barry Taylor, a retired commercial airline captain.

During these years, she also ventured into Georgia's Miss Teen America preliminary pageants, where she exhibitied exceptional talent in singing. Jaan loves trying new things which resulted in many different endeavors during her younger years, making her very well rounded. It was during her college career, as a student athlete at Clayton State University, that Jaan discovered her passion for acting which lead her to minor in Theater. She continued to nurture her craft through classes at a local studio and private coaching because “it's imperative to stay educated and skilled in your craft,” Jaan says.
