MORE ABOUT EILEEN
Were do you work? Where are you from?
I work from Cornelius, North Carolina, which is part of the Greater Charlotte Area and is situated on the beautiful shores of Lake Norman. I have lived in North Carolina since 2016 and enjoy the amazing Carolina blue sky! I was born in New Jersey and grew up in Upstate New York where the fall colors are spectacular.

What is your background? What brought you to JCA
I have worked in the nonprofit sector for over 20 years advancing philanthropy and community engagement in support of organizational mission and vision for arts and healthcare. My areas of concentration have been building high performing fundraising operations through the use of advanced technology, resulting in increased donor engagement and impact. During my tenure at Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare Foundation, I developed a real passion and understanding of the power of philanthropy, and the intersection of community, process and technology.
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Fiona Buttars, Manager Professional Services at JCA Consulting, in 2018 while serving as the project lead for Opera Carolina during the Tessitura Implementation Project. My initial conversations began with Steve Jacobson, CEO as we explored CRM options for the Opera, and we were so pleased to move forward with the project.
Fiona shared the Consultant position opening through her LinkedIn posting and I reached out to share my interest in joining the JCA Team…and what a great team it is!
What do I do outside of JCA?
Outside of JCA, I spend time with my two daughters, son-in-law, two beautiful granddaughters, and my rescue dog, Gracie Mae. I am a member of the Healing Dragons of Charlotte, a competitive dragon boat team that empowers cancer survivors and supporters through the team sport of dragon boat paddling. Kayaking, dragon boat paddling and hiking are my favorite outdoor activities. I am also a big arts advocate and enjoy Broadway theater, opera, symphony and jazz.
