There is really no common way to identify a woman who has maintained her maiden name. (Or to identify a married woman who does not use the term Mrs., for that matter. A woman who uses the term Dr. for example.)
The typically used method for identifying a woman as having a different name from her maiden name is:
Née -- It is the French feminine past participle of naître (to be born).
In other words: Jane Jones née Smith means Jane Jones (who was born Jane Smith).
Compare this practice to women who hyphenate their names: Jane Smith-Jones. Where again, Smith is her maiden name, and Jones is her married name.
Née can still be used to identify a woman who has kept her maiden name, as its meaning is still born. And, I've seen this construction applied in the past. But, it feels rather strange to see Jane Jones née Jones. Most would assume that she married a man of the same name.
