Roslyn M. Simpson, Esq.

Roslyn M. Simpson, Esq. is known for her success as a funding professional. Having led the major giving efforts at nonprofits and major universities for nearly 30 years, she is honored to have played a major role in TWO-$1Billion+ Capital Campaigns for select top-ranked universities, including her alma mater, the University of Southern California and the University of Arizona, where she served as Associate Vice President for Development. Additionally, she has guided the private foundations and business development campaigns for numerous professional athletes and coaches, where funding success and mass community outreach was realized under her direction.

Ms. Simpson credits her success to two main concepts; Exposure and Access. From an early age, she was exposed to the best educational institutions through athletics. This exposure gained her access to these elite academic entities where she was provided opportunities not regularly afforded to such similarly-situated individuals as herself. She vowed to, one day, reach back and bring others along the path in which she had endured and thrived, despite overwhelming obstacles.
