Katie Christian, Emmy Nominated Producer

Jane Bernhard is one of the best and brightest young minds I’ve had the pleasure to manage. Ms. Bernhard is the ultimate combination of intellect, instinct, charisma and grit. I hire people for their competence, their heart and their hustle; she over-indexes on all three.


Her talent comes so naturally and her work product appears effortless, but having been in her shoes and performed those same tasks in the service of others for years; I know how much hard work and work ethic they require. Her ability to narrow in on the ‘inauthenticities’ of a story, her taste and perception in sussing out a project’s commerciality, and her eye for talent are exceptional. I can’t take credit for what she was born with or what she brought to her internship at its start, but it has been one of the true privileges of my career to watch her blossom these past few years.


Jane works tirelessly. She goes above and beyond. She brings so much passion and wonder to the table. In full candor, she’d inspired me and breathed fresh life into our organization. 


I have no doubt that Jane will make a phenomenal creative leader one day. Because she already is one today.

Eric McCall, Director, Portfolio & Strategy, PlayStation Studios

I had the pleasure of managing Jane in the summer of 2022 when she joined my team as a Product Strategy intern for PlayStation Studios. In interviewing Jane, I found her passion for the Metaverse refreshing and energizing and hired her to spearhead competitive and market analysis on the Metaverse – to which she did a tremendous job.

Jane brought a multitude of wonderful traits to her role. First of a few to note is the passion she exhibited in the interview was only a fraction of the positivity, enthusiasm, and joy she brought to her project and the team, which we have certainly missed in the weeks since her return to school.


Secondly, Jane couples her enthusiasm with a strong desire to learn and grow. I find that interns sometimes have difficulty asking questions as if it’s a sign of weakness. Jane avoided that trap and embraced asking questions to improve herself and her project, which I strongly believe is foundational to the best employees.


Third, Jane exhibited an impressive amount of thought and rigor to her work.


Jane’s internship project was aggressive in it’s scope and she did an impressive job digging in and delivering a final presentation that both met its goals and can serve as a thought starter for months to come. I was very happy managing Jane and she was a joy to have on the team.

Ty Root, Managing Director, North America/Global at Subvrsive (WPP Owned Studio)

I had the pleasure of working with Jane at Subvrsive, where she was a great synergetic and strategic thinker. Her collaboration skills and ability to connect with people across all departments made her an integral part of our team. Her presentations to senior leaders were not only compelling but also showcased her ability to distill complex strategies into clear, actionable insights.

Jane also has a direct communication style, coupled with her adeptness in competitive analysis and strategic thinking, which helped keep us ahead in a very fast-paced ad/tech industry. She was never shy to challenge the status quo, always bringing fresh, innovative ideas to the table that helped Subvrsive win big projects, all while leading to happy clients.

She also showed enthusiasm for exploring new avenues and her commitment to digging deep for innovative solutions has left an indelible mark on Subvrsive. Jane is a true asset, embodying professionalism and creativity, and I'd happily recommend her to any organization looking to elevate their strategic approach using emerging technologies.
