Jamie founded CU Strategic Planning in 2008. She develops innovative, effective lending programs to increase impacts and ROA. Her background as a former PBS producer and cooperative idealism aligned in her service as a past publicist for the World Council of Credit Unions and leadership resulting in national credit union underwriting of the PBS program BizKid$.


Jamie is one of several hundred Credit Union Development Educators and one of less than 100 with a prestigious international (ICUDE) designation. 


She is a regular speaker at state and national credit union conferences, as well as the African-American Credit Union Coalition. Her research is published by the esteemed Filene Research Institute and featured in the Huffington Post.


Jamie's passion for credit unions stems from her heritage in the historic cooperative village of Zoar, Ohio--considered to be the most successful cooperative society in America and designated as one of the 25 most significant historic places in the nation. Beyond her interests in all things cooperative and historical, Jamie is kept busy by an active home life that includes her soulmate and husband, twenty-something son, toddler daughter, two cats and one precocious chihuahua.


She received her Bachelor of Science degree from the Ohio State University.
