Jamie was brought to the PNW originally as a Military spouse, when she began to discover Washington, often on her own using sites like ours. She has now been living here for 6+ years. Although she has ventured all across the PNW she remains in Thurston County by choice, under the guise that there is still so much to see and do. Jamie is a writer, a traveler, an outdoor recreation junkie, and a food and beverage connoisseur- always looking for the next delicious moment. She is a Master in Public Administration with an emphasis in research, writing and outreach. Her greatest honor is setting foot in all 50 states.
