Jamie received her BA in Psychology and Government from Smith College, where she specialized in the symptomatic effects of genocide on survivors. Jamie has worked as a Research Assistant for the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress, Child and Family Program since November 2012. Jamie’s academic studies were enhanced by her ongoing human rights activism. As co-founder and Chair of SmithSTAND (a student anti-genocide coalition), Jamie gained experience with diaspora community outreach and organizing campaigns. While pursuing her bachelor’s degree, Jamie worked as a Research Associate and Data Specialist with ServiceNet, a mental health provider in Northampton, MA. Jamie is strongly dedicated to improving research methodology to help survivors of mass violence. Thus, Jamie is excited and grateful to be part of such an ambitious team!
