Testimonials

“Jamie has been a key component of creating and successfully implementing our recurrent Stormwater Challenge Program workshops. Her expertise, especially in behavioral change, has led to a burgeoning cohort of enthusiastic volunteer weekend watershed restorers. Together, we have achieved so much more in our collaboration than I would have on my own!” Maria Cahill, Principal and Green Infrastructure Consultant, Green Girl Land Development Solutions

“Jamie is awesome to work with! She brings a wide array of both technical and on-the-ground skills that make her an asset to any program. I’m especially impressed with her skill in program evaluation. She’s led the way on student pre and post testing for one of our programs that we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish alone.  I always look forward working with her.”  Ely O’Connor, Education and Outreach, Clean Water Services

“Jamie is an amazing educator with a passion and thorough understanding for youth and their needs. She utilizes creativity, energy, and humor to make the natural world come alive for kids of all ages. She values the power of geography and place and utilizes this in all her educational approaches. She helped ferry Tualatin Riverkeepers through a transition of educators, helping to train and connect our newest educator with the community upon her arrival. She goes the extra mile to make sure a program is delivered top notch, no matter the extra hours. We are very grateful to have worked with her and to watch her as she brought the message of clean water and the watershed conservation to a new generation.” Mike Skuja, Executive Director, Tualatin Riverkeepers

“Jamie is bright, energetic, and extremely organized and detail oriented.  It is a pleasure to work with her because she always delivers excellent programs, tracks outcomes, and provides fantastic analysis and break down of results without prompting.  She is great collaborator and the public loves her personality.  I would recommend her services to anyone. The City of Gresham has hired Stamberger Outreach Consulting to conduct trainings and workshops on behalf of the city for our staff and the general public related to private stormwater management techniques such as downspout disconnection and rain gardens.  Jamie has created forms, tracking systems, procedures, factsheets, presentations, surveys, reports and manuals.” Keri Handaly, Stormwater Permit Coordinator, Water Resources Division, City of Gresham

“I cannot begin to express my appreciation for the work Jamie provided for the YSEALI Generation: EARTH Workshop in Cambodia.  Working within a tight deadline, she was able to work with 24 American and Southeast Asian professionals to pair up and deliver content on sustainability from a variety of perspectives.  Her guidance was supportive and encouraging, but she also was able to assure all of the workshop sessions were completed on time. The overall learning experience was excellent, and demonstrated Jamie’s ability to work with professionals across 11 countries to forge a valuable learning opportunity for young people in Southeast Asia.” Dan Ewert, Vice President, Program Research, Partnerships and Innovation and National Secretary, IAESTE United States, Cultural Vistas

Innovative, resourceful, dedicated and enthusiastic, plus a winning combination of experience and professionalism—Jamie Stamberger brings it!”  Gari Johnson, Community Outreach Specialist, Water Environment Services

“I had an opportunity to work with Jamie while she worked for the City of Gresham as I became interested in being more environmentally pro-active. I was very impressed with her knowledge of rain garden installation/use and native plants which were my areas of interest. She was timely for appointments, came prepared and was able to answer all my questions. Jamie was also very timely in answering any emails I sent to her with questions.  Many of my friends had an opportunity to work with Jamie and all felt equally satisfied with her expertise. Jamie was frequently written up in the Gresham Outlook highlighting things she was doing in the community to help keep our streams in the area healthy.  On a personal level, Jamie was just a delight to work with and I always enjoyed talking with her whether it was about rain gardens or our same home state. I would highly recommend Jamie for any consulting project.” Marcia Rice, Gresham Resident

“Jamie Stamberger is one of the best communicators I’ve worked with. Coupled with her extremely positive attitude and well-rounded background, she can connect with and educate almost anyone. She has very good hands-on experience with stormwater low-impact development techniques (extensive rain garden experience) and healthy streamside property stewardship practices. As a team member, Jamie brings people together and makes the whole team stronger. We will definitely use Jamie’s services in the future.” Steve Fancher, Department of Environmental Services Director, City of Gresham, managed Jamie indirectly at City of Gresham
