Jamie has worked within the Student Learning Center, previously the Learning Assistance Program, since 2014. Her passion for higher education began in graduate school while working as a graduate assistant for student athletes. From there, Jamie interned within the Learning Assistance Program advising the Men's Tennis and Men's Baseball teams, as well as assisting the Director of Academic Services for Student Athletes with the Men's and Women's Basketball teams. Though she received her Master of Science in Clinical Exercise Science, her time in the Learning Assistance Program caused her to pursue a career in higher education.
Jamie has worked as the Director of the As-U-R Program since June of 2015 and has invested in the growth of As-U-R's services on Appalachian's campus. In addition to her duties as program director, she also teaches the As-U-R Leadership Seminar and serves on Staff Senate. She has a strong interest in teaching post-college career skills and leadership development to the As-U-R population.
Before making Boone home, Jamie received her Bachelor of Science in Health Assessment and Promotion from James Madison University (Go Dukes!). Outside of her role at Appalachian, Jamie enjoys spending time outside with her husband, Kyle, and son, Rory.
