Jamie is a graduate of Seton Hill University with Bachelor of Art degrees in Musical Theatre and Communications. During her studies, she focused on the classical training, while incorporating the musical theatre style into her repertoire.
Jamie's aspiration is to spread the joy of performing arts, whether that be onstage, in front of the camera or in every day life.
I perform theatre simply because of the warm feeling I get when telling a
story through music and dance. It starts at my core and works its way
out to my fingertips, allowing me to feel like I have grown wings by
the end of a performance.
Seven years ago, I never would have thought a head injury could have
changed my life for the better. It opened my heart to a new passion
but gave me the confidence to keep my head up. Within the two years
of being concussed, I was able to explore who I was and how I wanted to
live the rest of my life. This exploration process happens multiple times
in my life since I aspire to live a fulfilled life. Being able to wake up everyday with a smile on my face and a warm heart as I head out for work, no matter what the job may pay, means I will never actually work a day in my life.
My personal goal during performances is to stay true to the character.
I enjoy the process of pulling memories from my personal life and
creating a back story for the character, to create honest emotions
while respecting the characters choices. I also strive to give the audience
something to remember. Whether that be a relaxing evening out or a
deeper lesson found in the play that could provoke positive change.
