Linda Jameson Myers is New Vice President of Institutional Advancement

Linda Jameson Myers

Linda Jameson Myers joins us from Mid-Pacific Institute where she was the Major Gifts Officer and Planned Giving Director for three years. Prior to joining Mid-Pacific, Linda worked for many years as the Senior Director of Development at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children which is among the network of hospitals within Hawaii Pacific Health. Linda was instrumental in raising funds for Kapiolani’s new Diamond Head Tower and worked with the leadership team on an aggressive $35M capital campaign for Hawaii’s children.

“I always aspire to be where I can make a meaningful difference and thrive,” said Linda. “I am excited to work alongside Assets’ new Head of School Ryan Masa, the Assets team, and Board of Trustees to build upon the success of the school’s phenomenal 65 years. Like my work at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children where miracles take place every day, I meet parents praising the daily learning successes at Assets and students who are so grateful that their parents found this nurturing environment. To parents and students, Assets is a miracle in their lives.” 

Linda's extensive background also includes corporate communications, marketing, community relations, and broadcast journalism at KHON-TV and KHSL-TV (California).  Linda is a graduate of the University of Hawaii at Manoa and the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.  As Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Linda will oversee Assets’ fundraising, communications, and community relations. She is an accomplished businesswoman in our community, and we are excited for her to join us during this pivotal time in the school’s history.
