Jennifer Spaniel Moore, chief operating officer of Greenville-based Graycliff Capital Partners, graduated from Clemson in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education and completed her Clemson Master of Business Administration degree in 2017. She was a first-grade teacher at Augusta Circle Elementary School in Greenville before beginning her business career.

She joined Graycliff, a leading real estate development and investment company focused primarily on the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, in 2014 and quickly assumed increasingly responsible roles. She rose from a real estate coordinator to director of operations within just 10 months and, at the age of 30, was promoted to chief operating officer in 2017.

Among her many community activities, Jennifer is an avid volunteer for the local Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home away from home for families whose children are receiving medical care at Greenville-area hospitals, and she is a member of the Red Shoe Society, a philanthropic arm of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas, headquartered in Greenville.

She spearheads Graycliff’s participation in events sponsored by Public Education Partners to support, strengthen and advance public education and student achievement in Greenville County Schools.

Jennifer is an advocate and supporter of local initiatives and organizations that foster the development of young women in leadership, including PEARLS (Preparing Engaging and Respectful Lady Scholars). She mentors other local professionals who are young Clemson alumnae and was named one of Greenville Business Magazine’s 2020 “Best & Brightest 35 & Under.”
