Meet Jamie...CTE Coach and Supervisor...Perkins guide...Former CTE Teacher...

Jamie’s journey began not in the sterile boardroom, but in the vibrant classroom. For over a decade, she ignited young minds across subjects like technology, art, and robotics, witnessing firsthand the power of engaging curricula. But her impact transcended the four walls. As a school board member, she championed policies that resonated not just with students, but with the entire community. Her leadership roles – Ad Hoc Committee Chair, Curriculum Chair, Community Engagement Chair – weren't titles, they were testaments to her dedication to building bridges.


This passion propelled her to the Vocational School District, where she became the guiding force for 19 career paths. From trades to tech, Jamie ensured students weren't just learning, they were launching. Aligning programs with industry standards, forging partnerships with post-secondary institutions – these weren't tasks, they were investments in futures.


But Jamie never stopped learning herself. Workshops, conferences, seminars – her quest for knowledge fueled her innovation in the classroom and beyond. Today, as an educational consultant, she empowers schools, administrators, and educators to embrace excellence. Her narrative isn't just about expertise, it's about transformation. She doesn't just consult, she ignites.


Jamie's story isn't written in board reports, it's etched in the smiles of empowered students, the success of thriving graduates, and the vibrant communities she helped build. In this ever-evolving educational landscape, she's not just an asset, she's a catalyst for change.
