|Nominating Committee National Leader in Practice for 15 Years or Less||
|| 1. By serving in both CO and MO and with ACEND and DPGs
2. Focusing on strategic direction allows us to stay on track, always coming back to our "why" to inform our decisions and actions moving forward.
3. I have helped develop goals to reinforce a collaborative open communication where all voices were heard. This approach allowed us to take a closer look at why we chose to be volunteers for the organization, while representing members in CO, and ultimately consumers we work with daily.

|Leadership Position||Organization||Years Involved in the Organization||My specific leadership contributions, achievements and outcomes:|
|President||Colorado Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics||2016 - 2017||An organizational audit and membership survey results gave the incoming board tangible, realistic expectations of what members need from their organization. The public policy committee had dissolved in the year prior to my presidency and we stepped back and put together a plan of rebuilding this committee. This restructuring will allow for opportunities to build and maintain relationships with Colorado legislators and develop a RDN Education Campaign for legislators and consumers.|
|President-Elect||Colorado Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics||2015 - 2016||Along with my annual conference planning committee, we put together a fabulous conference "Coming to the Table - Conversations on Food and Nutrition." We had over 15 educational sessions with speakers from eight different states, 12 CPEs offered, over 10 exhibitors, and a student poster session. The conference was a success both logistically and educationally. This was a team effort and a great lesson in event planning and management for me.|
|President||Denver Dietetic Association||2013 - 2014||I helped support a board member's vision of organizing and executing a mentor/mentee program. We organized various social events throughout the year to engage members differently and more frequently. I helped to fill all vacant board positions (3) upon entering my term as president. We helped support and execute a successful legislative day.|
|President Elect||Denver Dietetic Association||2012 - 2013||I helped organize over nine education sessions with fabulous food and conversation to support these networking and learning meetings. I helped support the growth of our Speaker's Bureau, allowing more RDNs to engage with consumers in numerous ways within our local community.|
|Program Co- Coordinator||St. Louis Culinary Society||2009 - 2010||I helped plan over six hands-on culinary sessions throughout the year. This allowed me to work alongside food writers, food scientists, educators, chefs, food service managers, food stylists, farmers, and other health professionals of various stages of life. I was able to build relationships with individuals throughout the St. Louis food scene, which continued to help and support my work at the time, with a local school district - providing local food and educations to students and staff.|
Going Back to Basics: Creating continued opportunities for all to have access to nutritious food options leading to healthy lifestyles. We continue to have a hungry population in the presence of excess food waste. RDNs can use their varied skill set to engage with the community using an entrepreneurial spirit bridging adequate food options, access, and nutrition and culinary education across our diverse communities.
Health on Purpose: Jamie helps consumers seeking a healthier relationship with food and nutrition. A similar model is facilitated in her leadership style, while building and maintaining relationships that matter; a meaningful collaboration.
