Jane Brearley

Partner and Global Head of Health, Portland

With over 20 years’ experience in healthcare communications, Jane is passionate about delivering integrated, insights-based campaigns that reach diverse audiences. She founded the global health practice at Portland when she joined in 2014, and has spent her career using her scientific background to translate complex concepts into tailored, engaging content for all audiences.

While Jane has worked in various healthcare agencies during her career, her abiding focus for the last ten years has been rare and ultra-rare diseases. Her work in that field has involved close partnerships with Patient Advocacy Groups and Foundations on all aspects of healthcare communications. Jane believes in working closely with patient communities, which she sees as both a privilege and a platform by which to see the world from a different perspective.

Jane holds a Ph.D. in Biophysics from Imperial College London and, at home, has three children, as well as a collection of cats, dogs, and chickens. She also believes passionately in the value of getting outside and breathing fresh air.
