After graduation, Jayne worked in mixed practice in South East Queensland and New South Wales for 10 years before returning to the University of Queensland (St Lucia) as a surgical registrar in 2005. In 2006/07, Jayne worked as a clinical instructor in small animal surgery at the University of California in Davis, CA before returning home to Australia to undertake specialty training in small animal surgery.
Jayne was awarded membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists (small animal surgery) in 2010 and completed her residency in small animal surgery at Murdoch University (Perth) in 2012.

She is currently completing her Masters in Veterinary Studies (Biomechanics) after designing and testing a locking plate for pancarpal arthrodesis in dogs.
