Working with Jessica White was a joy. Her insight and experience in working with a volunteer board of directors, managing a staff and keeping the Julian Center focused on its objectives made working with her a true pleasure.

As President of The Julian Center board of directors, I have been very pleased with Jessica's accomplishments while she fulfilled the position of Interim Executive Director. Her primary responsibility was to develop internal infrastructure, accountability, and financial stability.

Jessica analyzed our strengths and weaknesses, and quickly developed an action plan to correct. She  right sized the organization, assigned staff to positions that best fit their skill set, and integrated responsibilities for better accountability. She also established KPIs for each management position. Additionally, Jessica made difficult financial and budget decisions that would lead us to a more sustainable operation serving the community.

During her tenure with The Julian Center Jessica has demonstrated her strong leadership abilities. She leads change and innovation, provides clear and strategic direction, and executes with excellence. I am grateful for her efforts and would recommend her services to any and all organizations in need.

Sincerely,
Pam Matthews
The Kroger Co. Vice President
President, The Julian Center board of directors

Jessica did a TERRIFIC job as Interim President/CEO of The Julian Center in every aspect of the business. I have been singing her praises to everyone. And the best part is that her leadership has been very inclusive and she has been  the guide on the side, not the sage on the stage. It is capacity building at its best.

We think of Jessica often in terms of her leadership strength, focus and discipline.

Jessica was focused, precise and willing to apply her knowledge which demonstrated that she probably has forgotten more about planning and executing processes than most of us will ever learn! We are on our way to vast marketing improvement thanks to her expertise. It was great to have someone with her accomplishments at the table with such an important decision at stake.

Jessica brings professional experience and a heart for the mission at hand to the clients she works with. We are better at Joy's House for working with her and for listening to her guidance and advice.

I highly recommend Jessica and her team to any organization who is ready to be stretched and grow.

After carefully screening several candidates for campaign consultants, our Saint John's Foundation Board selected [Jessica White Associates] to assist us with preparation for a surgery capital campaign. As Foundation Director, I had the pleasure of working with Jessica. Here are some of the qualities of the counsel, which I value highly:

  • Fun to work with - Health care is serious work - life and death. While keeping that in mind, our time together was productive and fun. There was always room for laughter and the energy generated by creation of new, stimulating fundraising plans.
  • Professional expertise - Jessica has a wide range of experiences with a variety of clients. She can offer perspectives and tailor solutions to the specific needs of the client.
  • Big picture in mind - Regularly Jessica tested new plans against organizational and fundraising objectives. She provided several useful suggestions to strengthen the organization, not just the fundraising effort.
  • Candid in a respective way - Jessica [has] a gift for providing difficult feedback or new ideas in a kind way. This respectful but candid approach helped us bring needed information to the table and win support for next steps.

I recommend her highly to others seeking campaign consulting and will hire her again.
— Pam H. Jones, Foundation Director, Saint John's Foundation Director

Jessica presented a thorough, thoughtful recommendation for Dance Kaleidoscope. Not only was her work flawless, but her competitors told us Jessica was a perfect fit for us. To have that level of respect from competitors and colleagues is not to be overlooked. I am thrilled she is now working with Actors Theatre of Indiana.
