As a principal with Plante Moran Living Forward, Jamie specializes in providing data-driven advice to senior living communities as they plan for the future. Specifically, Jamie’s focus is assisting clients through the predevelopment process to confirm projects are right-sized, financially feasible, and in line with market need and future resident preferences. His clients range from existing standalone assisted living facilities to multisite life plan communities (LPCs).
Jamie works closely with the entire development team, including the architects and construction managers, to ensure clients’ projects meet their financial expectations and overall mission. To help drive a more operationally efficient building while also delivering an attractive product, Jamie provides insights that keep both the operator and the resident at the forefront during design and construction.
As part of this work, Jamie developed proprietary industry benchmarking tools to compare client operations, construction costs, and industry trends. The benchmarks help determine reasonableness of assumptions and project feasibility. In combining a streamlined process with his unbiased perspective, Jamie makes it possible for clients to thoroughly understand the opportunities available to them and confidently determine whether a project is worth pursuing.
Jamie also oversees Plante Moran Living Forward’s thought leadership initiatives. These efforts consistently question the status quo while also providing educational material for the many moving aspects of any development project. Jamie presents his thought leadership topics at conferences throughout the country.
Jamie earned a Bachelor of Science in finance from Miami University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Franklin University.
