“Helping non-profit organizations become stronger so that they can provide the services needed by their clients is such rewarding and gratifying work. I wish everyone could experience it!”

At CCT, Jamie oversaw a campaign for $1 billion, which closed at $1.6 billion – the largest campaign in history by a community foundation.

Prior to her work with CCT, Jamie served as vice president of external affairs for the Museum of Science and Industry and, in addition to Alford Group, consulted for Sumner Rahr & Company.

In her career, Jamie has held multiple leadership positions and currently sits on the board of the Coastal Community Foundation.
