She plans to remain in Nashville after graduation, and hopes to obtain a job within the music industry working closely with artists on tour or in a studio.
Due to her previous experience working as a dance instructor, Jamie has seen firsthand the power music has on children and knew that Sing Me A Story would be a great fit for her!
