Jamie spent the first 18 years of her life in Los Angeles, California before hearing and heeding the call of the Pacific Northwest, choosing to attend Lewis & Clark College in Portland for her undergraduate degree. At the time she was unsure whether she wanted to study math, world languages, music, or something else entirely. A raincoat purchase and a bout of Seasonal Affective Disorder later, she took her first computer science course, saw her screen flash its first “Hello, World!“, and hasn’t looked back since.

She graduated in 2020 with a degree in Computer Science and a minor in music, to find her freshly minted adult self right in the midst of a global pandemic. Trying to figure out her next step, she passed a few months back in LA, then a few more in Seattle, before deciding it was time to return to Portland. Around this time she found Sitka, and an opportunity to meld her background in computer science with her deep personal interest in sustainability and environmental protection.

At times when Jamie is not behind a computer screen, she can be found reading, cooking, crocheting, taking long walks around the neighborhood, fiddling with some musical instrument or other, or else passing the time with her cat and her snake.
