Jamie grew up performing in both musicals and dramatic roles in film and theater in NY, obtaining her Equity card at the age of 9 in a regional production of "The Rink". When she wasn't in school studying she was dancing and singing in a vocal harmony group or keeping busy doing commercials and modeling in magazines such as Vogue Bambini. She worked alongside Oscar nominee Tom Hulce, playing Alice Liddell to his Lewis Carroll in David Warren's Off-Broadway hit "Haddock's Eyes".

She had a glimpse of Hollywood the first time at the age of 12 when she flew coast to coast to screen test for TV shows such as "Blossom" and "Major Dad" while booking a lead role in the HBO after school special, "The Babysitter's Club". At 17, Jamie's love of the theater lead her to NYU Tisch School of the Arts where she majored in Acting with a minor in Art History. While there she went through extensive training studying everything from Shakespeare to Strasberg. New York University also supplied her with opportunity to pursue other interests such as African Art and Photography. After receiving her BFA she continued to study at Strasberg while working steadily in many off-Broadway productions and episodic television such as "Law and Order: SVU" and "The Sopranos". Her talent as a singer was recognized when she was selected by Hal Prince to perform in the first national tour of his Tony Award winning Broadway musical, "Parade". After one too many cold NY winters, she decided to trade in her boots with the fur for a pair of flip flops and head west. She fell in love with the warm weather, healthy lifestyle and the Sunday rides with her Ducati through the canyons in Malibu. Making LA her new home, Jamie loves working on television and in film. In April of 2011, she became a mother to daughter Veda Blue. The next 2 years she devoted almost all of her time to motherhood. However, storytelling was still calling her and she soon found herself working as a producer/writer/actress on several projects of her own.
