Jamie was born in San Francisco and grew up in Berkeley. Jamie found Awakening Church when she returned home after graduating from Biola University. She started coming to Awakening Fall of 2018 and although she never thought about working in ministry, God had other plans. As Kids Coordinator Jamie has been able to combine her two passions in life, the heart of Jesus and teaching kids.
Jamie has always loved working with kids. Prior to working for Awakening, she worked as a preschool teacher, a behavioral therapist, and a nanny. She is currently also pursuing her Masters in Education at San Jose State University and hopes to be an Elementary School teacher soon.
In her spare time Jamie loves being at the beach, chasing sunsets, traveling, and eating. Jamie’s love language is food, making it, eating it and feeding people is her other passion in life. She would love to trade recipes, send her one of your favorites and she’ll send you hers!
