Jamie Caperton, Executive Director

 
Jamie Caperton is a 35 year veteran of nonprofit service. She started her professional career as a registered nurse and soon moved into management positions with several corporate leaders in the health care field.

Her passion, though, is working with charities. She volunteered with Girls Scouts, Special Olympics and several others before making a career change to nonprofit fund-raising. She first started with the Austin Children’s Museum then moved to Texas Special Olympics as their State Fund Raising Director.

Her best move came when she decided to take the challenge of founding and directing the Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center. Jamie served as CEO for that organization for 10 years and then retired.

After 10 years of owning her own consulting firm helping nonprofit agencies, Jamie and her husband, Ben, retired to the mountains of Colorado and opened The Cellar Door a unique wine, home furnishing, décor, gifts and accessories store in Woodland Park. In 2013, Jamie decided to return to her roots in the nonprofit world and accepted the job as Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Teller County. She is excited to serve in the leadership position of this dynamic organization.
