Jaime Simmons

Assistant Dean & Director - Community Arts School

For over 20 years, Jaime has aided in building sustainable and vibrant organizations. Most recently she was the Chief Engagement Officer at Every Child, Inc. where she helped to reimagine the foster care program, energize the development efforts, and build a strong marketing and outreach program.

She has served as a consultant and staff member to numerous nonprofit organizations. She is passionate about the transformational power of art; constructing equitable systems; building networks and partnerships; providing youth-driven leadership opportunities; and championing diversity and inclusion efforts.

Jaime enjoys spending time with her wife, six-year-old son, and three crazy pugs. When she isn’t reading a book or adventuring with her son, she is trying to muddle through writing her dissertation.
