Jayne started her career in investment banking, then shifted to JD admissions and recruiting for the top Health Law program in the US. As a member of the Saint Louis University School of Law Admissions Committee, she was responsible for evaluating all JD program application components and rendering admission decisions.

She made sure to stay connected to the candidates she admitted during their law school journey by creating and leading the SLU Law Ambassador program. Shifting her focus to MBA admissions at Arizona State University, and most recently with the Kellogg School of Management, provided Jayne the opportunity to work with a new graduate school applicant population and continue to work with JD applicants.
