Stuff in the third person:

In years past, Jamie has been a hotel housekeeper, a graveyard shift donut fryer, and a welfare recipient, as well as an attorney, White House intern, and an elected official. More recently, Jamie has published and ghostwritten a number of books, written for several devotionals, and is a contributing writer for various print and online publications. She has also worked for or volunteered with at-risk youth and their families since 1995, both through direct services and advocacy efforts.

Jamie is currently working on her Masters of Divinity at Chicago Theological Seminary. Previously, Jamie graduated magna cum laude from Texas Tech University where she majored in both English and Political Science, and received her law degree from UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). She practiced dependency law for several years before opening her own law office, where she represented low-income women in domestic violence and family law cases. Now a writer and editor, Jamie’s background as a public interest attorney serves her well as she writes about issues of poverty, gender equality, disability, and social and juvenile justice, among other things.

Jamie has four children and is married to Andy, who is the founder and director of the One America Movement, where he works to bridge divides in America by bringing together people of various backgrounds — religious, political, and economic. Jamie is a member of the Redbud Writers Guild and the Religion Newswriters Association, and a Member in Discernment in the United Church of Christ. She serves on a number of local and national boards and committees, and is currently working on her first full-length book, The Telling Ground.

One thought on “About Me

  1. Just read your well written article on the TPP. The article was persuasive for as far as it went – but that’s the problem. It didn’t go far enough. If you are going to weigh in with a serious commentary on a public policy issue, I suggest that you also consider the options – including what would happen if TPP doesn’t pass. I would further suggest that if TPP doesn’t pass, the labor and environmental issues that you express concern about will actually become worse! Absent TPP, do we really want to trust that China will push for tighter environmental standards and more humane labor policies?? It seems that a case can be made that TPP is better than no deal for the very reasons you oppose it! It bothers me that a position can be taken that sounds meritorious and even righteous but in effect, by opposing TPP, you’re actually ushering in a world that will likely have fewer protections for both labor and environmental concerns.
