Jamie has collaborated with municipalities across the country to increase access to healthy, affordable foods and improve the health outcomes of their residents for over ten years. Most recently, she provided technical assistance to build the capacity of elected officials, city agency staff, and non-profit partners to expand participation in out-of-school time meal programs in 44 cities, and to develop coordinated city-wide initiatives that support healthier kids as part of Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties while working with the National League of Cities in Washington, DC.
Her technical assistance experience encompasses a variety of local and regional food systems topics, including policy analysis and development around local, state, and federal nutrition programs, and opportunities for urban planning to support healthy, sustainable communities. Jamie holds a masters degree in Food Systems from New York University.
