Jamie graduated from UW-Whitewater in December 2021 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology. She is starting at Concordia University in June of 2023 to pursue her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. Jamie worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at a local hospital during her undergraduate career where she was exposed to some of the work Physical Therapists do with patients. She loved seeing patients gain movement and strength even during their short stay at the hospital. Their journeys inspired Jamie to explore the world of physical therapy, and as she continued to shadow many different therapists, she knew this career would be a good fit. Jamie hopes to one day work at a neurology unit in a hospital once she completes her degree.
In her freetime, Jamie loves to hike, exercise, hang out with her dog, and be with friends and family. Her favorite place to hike is Governor Dodge State Park, but she always loves exploring new areas especially when her dog is by her side!
