Jamie Isom EditedJAMIE is often the first point of contact for inquiries coming into the NVCN.  She fields general questions by way of the internet and phone.  If she can’t answer the question herself, count on her to track down the answer with one of her colleagues, a member of the Board of Trustees or by reaching out to one of our local programs.  Jamie has been with NVCN since 2016 and she is passionate about the Volunteer Caregiving mission.  One of her greatest motivators is when she fields calls from family members who are in need of support and one of her greatest joys is when she is able to connect that person with local services to help.
