Jamie was born in San Jose, CA and spent most of her childhood there. For high school, however, she studied in her family’s home country of the Philippines, where she did outreach community service for families – providing clothing, food, and resources to low-income families. In 2020, Jamie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Human Systems Integration from San José State University. She worked at both Foothill College and San Jose-Evergreen Community College District doing graphic design and marketing for both campuses. She worked closely with school organizations to help students advocate and showcase their passions to the world through social media and marketing. She hopes to continue to use her skills in helping companies like CLSEPA that are dedicated to social equality and giving back to their communities.
