We're pleased to welcome Jackie Statum Allen as our Education Portfolio Director. Jackie has spent the last decade working in public school district administration. Most recently, she served as the Assistant Director for strategic planning, policy and grants development for Saint Paul Public Schools. In that role she led several high-impact projects including developing and implementing multiple district strategic plans and managing informational campaigns for referendum ballot issues.
