Jamie has grown up around the game of softball and is credited for helping her hometown high school in Fremont, Neb. add the sport her senior year. She was the first batter in program history – and promptly struck out. After an injury ended her varsity softball and tennis career, she turned her focus to sports journalism, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Webster University. She was the sports and managing editor of the Webster University Journal and later returned to the university to obtain a Master of Arts in Communications.
Jamie’s professional writing career has seen her working for her hometown newspaper, the Fremont Tribune, where she covered both the Nebraska State Softball Championships and Nebraska State Basketball Championships. She most recently completed a stint as a sports writer at the Warren County Record , a newspaper in suburban St. Louis.
Jamie became commissioner of the Team Saint Louis Kickball League in 2014 and held that title for three seasons. It was there she discovered her love for managing athletics, and returned to college to obtain her Master of Science in Sports Management from Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis. She will gradate upon completion of her internship with the Dawgs.
Jamie is beyond excited to be interning for the Scrap Yard Dawgs and hopes to be a big contributor to the expansion of the NPF. Jamie has a brother, Scott and a sister, Kristy. Her parents, Randy and Kelley, have been married for 43 years. She is also proud aunt to Ewan, Emma, Alexis, Kylie, Luke and Aidan.
