Jamie graduated from Montana State University in 2009 with a Master’s degree in electrical engineering with an emphasis in remote sensing/optics and started working at NASA Langley in 2011. She began working on SAGE III as a test engineer for the Instrument Assembly (telescope/detector portion of SAGE) in preparation for integration into the flight payload. She became the lead test engineer during the final phase of integration and testing of the SAGE III payload. This included operating and validating the functionality of the payload through environmental testing. Once the payload launched, Jamie transitioned to the Mission Operations team as a payload operations engineer. As of July 2018, Jamie advanced to Mission Operations Manager where she strives to maintain the excellent health of the payload and continue to collect high-fidelity science data.

Outside of work, Jamie enjoys spending time with her husband and dog Bella hiking and exploring nature. She also enjoys attending/hosting dinner parties and game nights with the amazing friends she has made at NASA.
