Jackie Cefola is a trusted advisor to leaders who are starting up new programs, services and social change organizations.
Jackie started her consulting practice in 2011 and has been fortunate to work with most clients over multiple years of service, in some cases over multiple programmatic start ups.
Before independent consulting, Jackie was Program Manager for Third Sector New England’s NonProfit Center where she helped to develop the center’s co-working spaces, shared services, collaborative training programs and communications. She previously managed and provided consulting services to small businesses and entrepreneurs at the Center for Women & Enterprise. She also gained experience at Environmental Defense Fund and Ernst & Young‘s Center for Business Innovation. She holds an MBA and Masters in Environmental Management from Yale University.
In spare time Jackie enjoys running short distances slowly, hiking to mountain views and watching things grow in her very small raised bed garden.
