In 2012, Jane was honored by Inside Business magazine as a “Women in Business Achievement Award” recipient and, in 2013, by the YWCA as a “Woman of Distinction.” Inside Business also named Jane to the “Power List, People Who Shape and Influence Hampton Roads,” for three consecutive years. In 2017, Jane was appointed by the Hampton Roads Estate Planning Council to the National Association of Estate Planners (AEP®).

In her spare time, Jane enjoys walking with friends on the Virginia Beach “feeder road;” skiing out West; spending time in Maine, and traveling to other interesting destinations with her husband, Win; spoiling her four beautiful granddaughters; and, desperately trying to catch up on her Book Club reading!
