She assisted with pioneering the Curriculum Development branch of the program, which she led during her final year. At Stanford more generally, she was actively engaged in educational initiatives at the Native American Cultural Center and the Stanford Humanities Center, as well as through the Flip the Script and CUNY-Stanford Exchange Programs, of which she is an alum herself. She was also actively engaged in the Stanford student community as a Graduate Student Council Representative and served on numerous committees, including as the Co-Chair of the Committee of 12. Following graduation, Jamie will serve as the Director of a new inter-tribal Native think tank servicing Indian Country, where she hopes to continue helping others achieve success.
