Jamie grew up in the boonies of New York, spending most of her time baking for her friends and teammates. From a family of nurses, she branched off and pursued her passion of baking and pastry. With good grades and drive, she continued her education at Newbury College in Brookline, MA. Jamie balanced six-hour classes, playing on her college’s soccer team and a full-time job at the beginning of her pastry chef career as only a sophomore. In this time she refined and sophisticated herself in her field. After graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Culinary Management, she decided she needed a change of scenery and even a change of hospitality work. She found comfort in the Ocean state and was employed by one of the most well-known restaurants on the shore. The Coast Guard House had become a new beginning for Jamie as she began her job as the front of house manager. After 6 months of front of the house management, Jamie missed her chef coat. With a small transition, she found herself back to her roots covered in flour as the first Pastry Chef the Coast Guard House has ever had. When away from the kitchen, Jamie continues to enjoy playing soccer, going to the beach, and spending quality time with friends and family.
