Jamie was raised as a military brat, meaning her father was in the military and she grew up on air force bases for 15 years. Once her dad retired her family moved to Watertown South Dakota, where she began shelving materials at Watertown Regional Library. Jamie continued working at the library throughout all her high school years. After graduating high school, she attended college and received a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. Job searching brought her back to Watertown Regional Library where she took a position the Young Adult Librarian. Jamie has held her position for almost 4 years and enjoys having teens back in the library! Teens are her favorite part about working at the library. Teens always bring exciting and spontaneous ideas to the library.

Jamie adores spending time with her two barn cats Boo and Ki and her two amazing dogs Gypsy and a Yorkie named Mocha.
