Meet Jane

Jane Hahn Watkins’ experience in college admission work is comprehensive and unique, as she has enjoyed the benefits of working on both sides of the process.

Jane Hahn Watkins, President and Educational Consultant

During her time as an Associate Director of Admission at Ohio Wesleyan University, Jane devoted much of her attention to reading and reviewing thousands of college applications as well as conducting thousands of college interviews with prospective students. Wanting to fully understand and gain perspective for the other side of the college admission process, she also served as an Associate Director of College Counseling at Groton School, working closely with students who garnered admission to some of the most selective schools in the country and abroad.

Jane received her undergraduate degree from The University of Utah and her master’s degree from The University of Akron. She is a professional member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), and the Ohio Association for College Admission Counseling (OACAC).

My College Advocate follows the Independent Educational Consultants Association Principles of Good Practice.

College Visits

My College Advocate understands how important it is to find the right fit and that is why Jane dedicates approximately 20% of her time each year visiting college campuses throughout the United States and abroad.

These visits give Jane valuable up-to-date information on student life, new academic programs and initiatives, research opportunities and much more. Equally important, these visits give Jane the opportunity to engage one-on-one with students, administrators, and admission officers to best understand their respective campus culture and student life. Jane has visited:
