My job
Director of Development, with Graland since 2016

In a nutshell
Jessica promotes fundraising and “friend raising” at Graland. “I equally value the opportunity to bring in gifts to the school and to enhance the experience of a broad cross section of individuals who are tied to Graland.”

Career journey
Started her career in development as a college freshman making calls to alumni at Princeton University. Spent a short time in human resources recruiting Princeton grads, which led her back to campus and a high-level job in the development office building the annual giving campaign. Took her years of experience onward to lead advancement efforts at a country day school on the east coast before moving to Denver in 2016.

Professional passion
“People are my passion. I see myself as a kind of matchmaker; I get joy out of understanding a person’s passions and matching that interest to a complementary need at the school.”

Personal side
Originally from New Jersey, Jessica moved to Denver with her husband and two daughters after realizing that the family’s favorite vacations were always in the mountains. Their free time is now spent exploring Colorado and embracing the mountain lifestyle.
