Jamie’s passion for animals started as a child and she spent many years in 4H showing dogs, horses, and rabbits. Realizing animals were a way of life for her, she pursued her veterinary technician degree at Macomb Community College and went into emergency medicine. As a licensed technician, she enjoyed how her skills could improve the life of pets and their human families. During her tenure as an ER tech, Jamie completed a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at Oakland University.
After spending 10 years in the clinical setting, Jamie moved to sales with a Veterinary Distributor, helping clinics improve inventory management and sharing techniques across clinics. Her career continued to follow the sales path until she found herself back on the operations side, most recently working as a Regional Manager for a group of veterinary clinics where she truly enjoyed developing the business and her staff. Jamie has a true passion for the veterinary industry and she loves being able to support and educate those around her.
Jamie lives in North Carolina with her partner, James, their three dogs (Ara, Walter and Sadie) and 3 cats (Opal, Spice and Pinguino). She is a foster for the Cavalier Rescue Trust and spent many years showing Irish Setters. In her free time, she loves to explore the mountains of North Carolina either in her sports car or hiking the trails. Jamie a self-proclaimed foodie, amateur wine connoisseur, and enjoys travel and knitting.
