After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania (LHU) which is one of the 14 members of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

She gained over 15 years’ worth of experience before deciding to pursue another career path.
Move to QVC
In 1998, Brown decided to move to QVC as a member of the team behind the scenes – the company’s name is an acronym which stands for Quality Value Convenience and is the flagship shopping channel of the Qurate Retail Group, founded in West Chester in 1986, and is broadcast to 350 million households around the world, including in the UK, China, Italy, Germany and Japan. She began working as an assistant buyer for QVC, and spent most of her time observing presenters as they sold products in front of a camera.
After nine months of working behind the scenes, she wanted to gain more opportunities to increase her income, and so auditioned for a presenter role with the company. She was successful, and in 1999 made her first broadcast. She was seen presenting with other popular names of the channel, including Pat James DeMentro whom she is close friends with outside of work. She mentions that she enjoys working for QVC, spending time with the team and collaborating to help reach out to viewers.
Recent Endeavors and Other Projects
Since joining QVC in the late 1990s, Jayne has remained with the company thanks to her love for her job and due to the convenience the job brings as it is very close to her hometown. She is now one of the most experienced hosts of the show, and so also spends time training new QVC presenters, setting up the next generation of people who will possibly follow in her footsteps.
She maintains her role as one of the network’s main hosts, although back in 2005, a lot of people started noticing how she looked to have lost a significant amount of weight, and became concerned thatshe might have been struggling through a disease. Eventually, she opened up about the weight loss, stating that she took up tennis to help with her fitness, and plans to maintain the sport to help her shed pounds. She mentioned that after starting tennis, she fell in love with the sport and plays alongside her family. Viewers were relieved as many of those who watch her programs are also big followers of her personal life.

They live together in New York alongside their two daughters, who have graduated from college and are now working on their respective careers.
