Jamie joined the Shawnee Mission Board of Education on January 13, 2020.
Jamie has three children in SMSD schools. She volunteers on site councils, PTA committees, and booster clubs. She loves connecting with families at school events.
Jamie ran for School Board for three reasons:
1) Fighting for ALL kids
2) Kids and mental health
3) Work to close achievement gap
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.
