Jamie is originally from Baltimore, MD. She graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Salisbury University in 2016 and went on to receive an MFA in Creative Writing from Northern Arizona University in 2019. While pursuing her graduate degree at NAU, she taught 100 and 200 level composition classes as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. She also worked as an editor on Thin Air Magazine, a graduate-run literary journal published by NAU. After graduating, Jamie decided that she loved Arizona too much to move back east, so she moved down to the valley where she taught middle and high school level literature in Queen Creek, AZ. Jamie loves writing and reading fiction and poetry and has had her own work published in various literary magazines over the years. She lives in San Tan Valley with her husband, mother-in-law, and daughter.
