“Love cannot remain by itself — it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.”
– Mother Teresa
Metairie native, Jaimee Landry Boyd, is serving as the Assistant Treasurer for the Junior League of New Orleans. Her Board of Directors term will run for two years as she will oversee the financial affairs of the organization, including reviewing and approving the League’s operating budget and authorizing purchases. Insight and expertise gained through Jaimee’s accounting career enable her to make recommendations on the organization’s policies, strategic goals and governance documents as they relate to financial matters. She hopes to automate and create efficiencies in the organization’s financial reporting process, so the data can be used both as a resource and a tool for leadership.
Since 2010, Jaimee has served on JLNO’s Finance Council, as well as on the Planning and Development Council. She’s held the Treasurer position for two different Councils and has been a committee member for Strategic Planning and Business Evaluation. She joined the Junior League to have a resource where she could participate in high-need volunteer activities across the community. Through JLNO, she’s developed a clearer understanding of and respect for the community, and she appreciates the personal growth that comes from being a volunteer. Her understanding of JLNO and what she can offer the organization has changed since she first joined. It’s her belief that if it were only a two to three-year experience, she would have missed out on her greatest years as a member.
Jaimee graduated with Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in accounting from Wake Forest University and has a Juris Doctorate Degree from Sturm College of Law, University of Denver. Jaimee has been a licensed CPA since 2000 and a licensed attorney since 2007, imparting her with a unique blend of legal, financial and compliance experience. Jaimee previously served as the Vice President of Finance for an owner-operator of skilled nursing homes, navigated the entity through a period of noncompliance with its debt covenants and led its $63 million debt restructuring. She joined Foley & Judell in January 2014 and has served as bond counsel on many government healthcare, conduit healthcare and education financings. She has been a conference speaker for the National Association of Bond Lawyers, the Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants (LCPA) Medical & Healthcare Services, Postlethwaite & Netterville and Ochsner Health System. Her volunteer service includes being the Treasurer of the MAAS Gala, as well as membership in Women in Public Finance and service on LCPA Medical & Healthcare Services and Nonprofit Committees.
Jaimee and her husband Kenneth are parents to two children, Evelynn (10) and Grant (7).. Children provide a great deal of joy to her as she has previously been a Team Leader for elementary students participating in the STEAM program Destination Imagination. She is inspired by a fellow Junior League member, Maria Huete, for her work ethic and commitment to service.
