Meghan Jamison, Managing Associate – Research and Grant Services
Giving back has always been a priority of mine, and having the ability to combine what I do with what I love is truly a blessing. In 2013, I started working at Front Range Source as the Social Media Specialist. I absolutely love connecting people with the resources and expertise we have at Front Range Source. That job allowed me to really get a sense of the challenges our clients face in reaching people through so many of the different ways that are available today.
I’ve always been a curious person, so when I started doing research and fundraising writing for Leslie and Ann, I knew I’d found something else at Front Range Source where I could really add value. Once we understood that our clients were looking for help with prospect research and grant writing, we created a complete set of services and I was asked to lead the charge.
This kind of work isn’t far from my roots. My family has always been involved in the nonprofit sector in some way. My mom is the Curriculum Director in our school district and my father produced fundraising films for nonprofit organizations working in the US and abroad. After graduating with a Bachelors of Business Administration from the University of Iowa, I went to work in human resources for five years, which not only sharpened my project management skills, but also piqued my interest in human behavior. I use my human resources experience nearly every day at Front Range Source!
I love Colorado, but I’m still a Hawkeye! My husband and I live in Peoria, IL where my husband coaches athletics at Bradley University. We share our place with our adorable golden retriever, Phoebe.
