Jamie Mittelman

Jamie is on a mission to make sure that people of all ages are inspired by women athletes who look and sound like them. A deep believer in the power of stories to change lives, Jamie is deeply committed to elevating as many diverse voices as possible within the world of elite women’s sports.

Her background is in media and international nonprofit work, having lived in Bangladesh working at the first liberal arts school for women in Asia. On the media side, Jamie managed a $30 Million portfolio for the conglomerate of Yahoo, The Huffington Post, AOL, and Verizon. Her favorite work has always been bringing together stakeholders to scale impact such as when she was a part of creating and executing a new track of a technology challenge in collaboration with the White House and Peace Corps. The goal was to inspire US high school girls to pitch and implement tech ideas empowering the #62MillionGirls globally without access to education, and Jamie loved working across the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

She holds a Master in Public Administration from the harvard kennedy school (HKS), where with the support of harvard university’s innovation lab and women and public policy program, Jamie launched flame bearers, the first global storytelling platform for women Olympians and Paralympians. Jamie’s work with Flame Bearers reaches 48 countries and recently received multiple Awards in the categories of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Public Service & Activism.  She also co-chaired the HKS women’s conference with virtual and in person iterations. During her time at Harvard, Jamie was selected for the Transition Term Fellowship to support incoming elected officials. A Democrat, Jamie was eager to work for a Republican because she noticed her friends and country fraying due to political tribalism. Jamie’s time working with Utah’s Governor Cox was foundational to how she views partnership. Jamie received the award for significant impact on the Harvard community.

Jamie also received her MBA from dartmouth’s (tuck) school of business, where she spent as much time as possible hiking and skiing in the woods. She was a Fellow for the Center for Digital Strategies and received the Julia Stell Award, issued by the Tuck community, for demonstrated leadership in school programs and functions, and extraordinary efforts supporting fellow students. At Tuck, Jamie consulted with the World Economic Forum and led the student delegation to win the World Government Summit’s Global Universities Challenge.

She’s deeply passionate about her family, friends, and leaving things just a little bit better. While Jamie identifies as an athlete, when working with Olympians and Paralympians she dons her marketer hat. That said, she just completed her second Marathon, is a certified yoga instructor, and loves anything outdoors and active.
