Fielding Jezreel 8x10 headshot“As a first time visitor, the poise and confidence of City Academy students takes your breath away. As you get to know the school, you see first-hand how hard students are working, the high expectations to which the administration and instruction staff hold students, and the commitment and sacrifice by parents to ensure their kids get an exceptional education.”

In 2016, Fielding joined the City Academy family as the school’s Grant Writer. Fielding is an independent grants professional with three and a half years of grant research, production, and management experience in the St. Louis region. She is grants professional certified (GPC) and has raised more than 15 million dollars for area nonprofits and approaches her work with the goal of supporting the creation of strong programs and projects through thorough program design, evaluation planning, and donor engagement.

Fielding is board president of the Grants Professional Association – St. Louis Chapter, sits on the mentoring committee for Association of Fundraising Professionals – St. Louis Chapter, and volunteers with Welcome Neighbor STL. When she is not working, Fielding spends most of her time with her dog, hiking and camping in Missouri’s state parks, and taking trips with friends.
