As Associate Director of College Events and Signature Programs, Jamie is responsible for executing signature events on campus, with an emphasis on an annual fundraising event – the Bear2Bear Benefit & Bash – designed to raise crucial funds for Ursinus’s Bear2Bear Student Emergency Fund.


Jamie joined the UC Advancement Office in September of 2017. Prior to her current role, she managed our reunion giving program and Greek alumni giving challenges, and played a key role in our annual #Giving2UCday.

Previously she worked in development at The Food Trust, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit, where she planned special events, cultivated relationships with donors and sponsors, and managed annual fundraising campaigns.

Jamie lives in Phoenixville and in her spare time she enjoys traveling, outdoor adventures, and monitoring the antics of her three rescue cats and spoiled backyard chickens!
