Jamie is excited to join the Shawnee Mission Board of Education. She is sworn into office on January 13, 2020.
Jamie has three children in SMSD: one at SMNW, one at Trailridge Middle School and one at Christa McAuliffe Elementary.
Jamie volunteers on school site councils, she leads various PTA committees and enjoys connecting with families at school events. With her involvement, she understands how each building, each teacher and each student is unique.
As an Emmy Award winning journalist, senior level business executive, and Founder of SMSD Circle of Kindness, Jamie believes in a growth mindset. She has dedicated her time to helping the Shawnee Mission community create the best version of itself, and will continue to do so as part of the Board of Education.
From her role in helping abused and neglected children as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), to the young men and women she mentors through Kansas State University's Business Executive Mentorship program, empowering young people of all ages is the driving force behind her servant leadership approach.
