As Operations & Administrative Coordinator, Jamie supports the dynamic team of organizational and departmental directors in carrying out the mission of reimagining philanthropy’s role in advancing a thriving and just world. Jamie specializes in anthropological research, data analysis, and logistics, and is excited to bring her expertise to the field of philanthropy for the first time.
Jamie comes to Justice Funders with 11 years of experience supporting the educational and personal development of Black and Brown youth residing in underserved communities. While pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in English degree at Ursuline College, Jamie served as a mentor for the institution’s civic engagement initiative/ pilot program. By 2014, she became the Program Coordinator whose efforts in curriculum and events yielded 100% high school graduation rate among its participants in 2016.
That same year, she launched a campaign entitled “Dance for Flint” that partnered with the YWCA of Warren, Ohio, and local professional artists to raise resources for the Flint, Michigan water crisis. She is currently working on turning this campaign into a movement that not only fosters diverse social justice efforts, but brings the arts to low access communities.
When all of the professional hats come off, Jamie can be found in various dance spaces across the Bay Area—immersing herself in Afro Urban, Modern, Hip Hop and Ballet dance festivities.
