Jamie leads our strategy and process design work across multiple programs. In her unique role she translates client needs into Drucker-based questions—and converts those questions into collaborative exercises that elevate the effectiveness of leaders in the private, public and social sectors. Jamie also brings our Company Rankings to life for senior executives and their teams through our corporate consulting services and is instrumental in shaping the curricular strategies of our Spring Cleaning and Harbor Freight Leadership Lab programs. Jamie joined the Institute in 2009 with a deep background in management, having worked her way up to VP of Operations in her family’s industrial filtration business. In that role, she doubled the company’s revenue and eventually negotiated the sale of the business, staying on as part of the team to manage the integration of the two companies’ systems, procedures and cultures. She holds bachelor’s degrees in both Environmental Studies and Geology from the University of California at Santa Barbara and an MBA in sustainable management from Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco. In addition to doing her best to make the world a more joyous and well-managed place, Jamie is an avid backpacker in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
