She started her media career a couple of years ago at the BBC championing emerging music talent from Wales across the BBC radio networks and internationally through events and music festivals, radio and tv programming and working closely with partners across the music industry.

Jayne helped champion LGBTQI inclusion and representation in Wales for many years working with organisations such as All About Trans, Welsh Government, and was featured as part of Stonewall’s ‘Come For Trans Equality’ campaign.
