Jane helps global companies transform from the inside out by empowering key stakeholders around a human-centric strategy that turns moments into movements, drives business results, increases engagement, bolsters reputation, and builds advocacy at scale.
Since joining Gagen MacDonald in 2013, Jane has overseen a diverse portfolio of projects focused on M&A support, designing and executing robust internal communication transformations, and global storytelling activation. She is currently supporting a leading global health care company in standing up a new function, and mobilizing their global workforce of 140,000 around a shared purpose.
Recently, Jane helped a Fortune 500 science company navigate a historic company-wide merger, supporting the integration management office on internal communication strategy, designing a control tower process to manage reputational risk, and developing an executive positioning initiative for a new CEO.
For a large public utility, she supported an initiative that built advocacy at scale—expanding the company’s influence on key policy outcomes through an aligned and equipped team of internal ambassadors.
Previously, Jane led project management for leader, employee and retiree communications strategy during a multi-billion dollar integration between two large medical device companies.
Before joining Gagen MacDonald, Jane was a fellow with the Center for Social Impact Communications at Georgetown University. She started her career in London, designing events for a leading international creative agency.
Jane’s passion for connecting communities extends beyond her work with Gagen. From providing strategic communications counsel to nonprofits to being a speaker at industry events, Jane enthusiastically fuels connections and gives back to the organizations from which she has benefited so much.
Jane earned her Master of Public Relations & Corporate Communications from Georgetown University, and her Bachelor of Science in Media & Communication Studies with a Certificate in Leadership Studies from Florida State University.
