Jamie has built a strong and lasting foundation for fundraising, especially in the area of major donor cultivation. She has completed multiple and critical tasks for us including the creation of a thorough fundraising strategic plan, building us a massive new prospect list, and coaching our new Director of Individual Giving.
And what’s so great about Jamie is she truly understands fundraising and its challenges for staff and working with boards etc. She’s also immensely easy to work with – responsive, insightful and generous. My staff loves working with her. I believe she would be an asset to any organization seeking expertise and innovation around development work.
Jamie operates from a place of genuine human understanding, compassion, and connection. For her, development is about building community that is deeply rooted in organizational mission and friendship. She doesn’t shy away from difficult conversations; rather, she thrives at addressing the needs of an organization directly and honestly. Jamie knows how to bring boards together, how to motivate leaders, how to bring donors closer to an organization and, in broad strokes, how to inspire non-profits to prosper authentically… all with a unique warmth and sense of humor.

In addition to her interpersonal and relationship strengths, Jamie is the consummate professional. She is organized, detail-oriented, passionate, and has exceptional follow through. She works thoughtfully and deliberately, and her wheels are always turning.

I marvel at the impact Jamie has had on our board, organization, and my own development as a fundraiser in a matter of months.

Jamie was the first person I approached as a Founding Board member of PAVE, and she been an invaluable leader as Chair of the Development Committee.  Furthermore, hiring her as a consultant for our capital campaign and as a development coach afforded us the resources and expertise  of a senior development professional which otherwise would have been difficult to maintain in-house. Jamie is an incredible executor of ideas. She thinks ahead, digs into the details, and follows up every step of the way. Jamie loves nurturing relationships and connecting people’s passions to actions. She is enthusiastic and warm while persistently keeping her eye on goals. She brings fantastic energy, sharp thinking and leadership to every project.
 
Jamie is a joy to work with; She’s energetic, creative, warm and highly productive. Jamie is extremely astute about people, building excellent relationships, and she is passionate about the cause she supports. She continually makes things happen and gets great results.

Jamie and I have served on the PAVE Schools Board together since 2010. During this time, I’ve watched her build authentic and lasting relationships with fellow board members, the PAVE team, students, and families. Her genuine commitment to PAVE has helped the organization secure the resources to significantly broaden its impact. We are lucky to have her!
 
Jamie brings a systematic and organized approach to every project she tackles.  Her fundraising success is a result of a professionalism which she has demonstrated can also be taught.  She would be an asset to any organization.

Jamie is an absolutely amazing human being. She’s the person you want in your corner on a daily basis. She goes hard after what she believes in!
 
Jamie will serve as a good rudder for steering anyone in the right direction for achieving fundraising goals.  Years ago, she helped organize and motivate me in the tough world of political fundraising and she did it with grace, enthusiasm and professionalism.  She has the tenacity to keep pushing, the integrity to be credible and a zeal that will rub off on whatever you’re doing.
