Meet Jayne Katherman
Associate Attorney
Barley Snyder: Attorneys At Law

What role do you play in your organization?

I am an attorney serving York and Lancaster counties in real estate, municipal, construction, and business law industries. I have experience working with landowners and developers in various real estate acquisition, operations, and land development stages. I also have a unique perspective as I have sat
on the other side of the table, acting as Solicitor to several municipal authorities.

How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life?
My involvement with ABC Keystone has provided ample opportunities to expand my professional network. More specifically, my involvement with the Young Professionals committee has allowed me to connect with other similarly situated young professionals in the real estate and construction industries. The chance to communicate and work with like-minded peers will enable me to grow and further educate myself in these industries.

What are your hobbies?
My favorite roll in life is playing “Auntie Jay” to my five nieces and nephews. When I’m not goofing around with them, you can find me taking a nap (I’m a highly skilled power napper), cooking, taste-testing a new wine, taking HIIT classes, traveling, or listening to my mom’s old records.

Favorite or inspirational quote?
Not necessarily a quote, but I recently heard a story about a dying woman getting her affairs in order. One of her final wishes was for the pastor to put a fork in her casket with her. When he puzzlingly asked why, she responded, “Any time main dishes are cleared after a meal, and you hear someone say ‘Keep your fork,’ you know the best is yet to come [dessert].” I strive to live my life this way, fork in hand, knowing the best is always yet to come.
