TLG is proud to spotlight Ms. Jaime Moody. A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Jaime entered the Foreign Service in 2010 and is an officer in the Economic career track. She currently works in the Office of Sanctions Policy and Implementation in the Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs, where she ensures that the Department of State’s sanctions policy aligns with the United States’ foreign policy goals. Previously, Jaime represented the United States as a delegate to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva, Switzerland. During her time there, she represented the United States at the “Geneva Group,” a group of donor countries concerned with UN management and administration issues; represented donor countries in the evaluation of UNCTAD programming on international trade; and participated in the 70th session UN General Assembly Second Committee negotiations on economic and financial issues in New York.
Jaime is a member of the 2008 Charles B. Rangel Fellowship class and is currently president of the Pickering, Rangel, and Payne Fellows Alumni Association (PRFA). She holds a B.A. in Political Science from Xavier University of Louisiana; an M.A. in Global Finance, Trade, and Economic Integration, from the Korbel School at the University of Denver; and a certificate in Contemporary Energy and Nuclear Security Environment studies from the National Defense University. While in Washington, DC Jaime has been a community service volunteer through the Urban League and PRFA, and is currently an Ambassador for the Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture.
“So far, I have found my multilateral tour to be the most rewarding professional experience,” Jaime said. “As a delegate to an international organization, I was able to work with the Secretariat, interact with the civil society community, and most importantly, engage a wide range of UN member states. Engagement was the most important aspect of my job and the core of what we do as diplomats. I learned so much from my time there and highly recommend that TLG members take advantage of opportunities to work with international organizations.”
