Even though she was born and raised in Augusta, Ga., Jane developed a love of Charleston at an early age. Her father was a Citadel graduate and brought his family to the Isle of Palms and Kiawah Island for summer vacations. Will Barrett also gave his daughter an inside look into the business of buying and selling homes through his own real estate company in Augusta. Jane returned to Charleston to earn a degree in business administration from the College of Charleston. She's been working as a licensed Realtor since 2005. She has qualified for the Circle of Excellence many times. Jane and her husband, Sted Dowd, live in West Ashley with their two teenage children, Barrett and Stedman. She and her family enjoy tennis, water activities and College of Charleston basketball. Jane is an avid runner, triathlete and gardener. She also volunteers at Charleston Day School and Porter-Gaud School. Jane has been on several missions trips, including a trip to Africa where she climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. She tries to do at least one mission trip each year and her daughter, Barrett, has accompanied her on all the trips.
