CDFI Operations Guru
Community Development Manager
Jamie knows just how to set fire to credit union growth—quadrupling assets at a small CDFI certified credit union in just eight years (that’s right, 400%)! As a graduate of CUNA Management School, Credit Union Development Educator and small credit union manager, she truly understands how to leverage all roles in a credit union to implement scalable community development programs.
With a strong family foundation in a small town, Jamie grew up volunteering with both children and seniors—even fighting forest fires—which set a career course to do good in the world. Never without a smile, Jamie’s biggest joy is in knowing the lives of individual members are changed through financial counseling.
Jamie is an avid fisher and bowler whose league celebrates each time she scores a 300. Jamie and her partner Kirk have a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, and all three of them are Trailblazer and Portland Timbers Fans.
