Hello! I’m Jamie. I’m a city girl, living in a screwed up world trying to make it day to day without killing someone.
So far, so good.
I’m a social media guru who is currently running all social platforms for the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office in St. Johns County, Florida. Along with doing their social media, I’m also managing their website, helping out with video production, am an agency photographer, an amateur graphic designer, article writer, and basic Jane of all trades. I’m a member of the three person Media Relations team.
Professionally, I’m the one you are going to turn to if you have any kind of question about social media or media in general. I have 12 years of broadcast news experience, from editing to writing. I’ve always been behind the camera. I’ve been event planning for years both personally and professionally, so planning events comes naturally. Brainstorming ideas for social media campaigns, marketing and advertising campaigns, big events and big projects are a welcome challenge, and I bring to the table a fresh look at how to include social media in all events. I’m always eager to find new and exciting ways to expand on my skills and knowledge as well as participate in different events that could be seen as an ‘adventure.’
Personally, I’m a hippie chic with a rocker girl vibe, speak sarcasm and music lyrics fluently, runs and blogs about it at Idiot Runner Girl, and writes fiction and poetry to escape reality. I try to embrace reality while celebrating my imagination as often as possible, and I like to listen to music really, really loudly. I also don’t shy away from stating my opinion and having an open debate, so long as both parties are able to keep it civil. (That means be nice, dammit!)
I suffer from migraines and from depression. I’m a huge advocate for depression and suicide awareness, and am a member of TWLOHA Blue. I can’t sing but I like to try. I play video games on our PlayStation 4, and I love first person shooting games now that I have a better understanding on how to do it. I love to color in adult coloring books and go through colored pencils way too fast. I’m a photo junkie who is obsessed with selfies, and I make my husband take them with me as often as possible. I am also obsessed with owls, tattoos, piercings, and all things nerdy. Yes, I read fanfiction. No, I’m not embarrassed to admit that. I live on Spotify, Instagram, Coca-Cola, fine point RSVP pens that I can now only get on Amazon Prime, spiral notebooks, journals and my iPhone 7.
I’m a touch hippie, bit gypsy, kinda mad, little angry, smidge nerdy, a lot crazy, and a big dreamer.
That there is my dreamboat, Brian. We’ve been married for almost 8 years now. He is the Plant Manager of Peterbooke Chocolate and has a serious obsession with all things Batman. He’s a history buff and loves a good debate, and for some reason is totally cool with having a wife be the loud obnoxious one of the relationship. (That’s right: he’s the quiet, stoic one.)
Together, we debate all kinds of things happening in life. We like to laugh and don’t take things too seriously. We are workaholics and work hard at what we do, and care far too deeply for the things and people we love. He supports my running, and I support his cooking. I support his new video game habit, and he supports my new coloring obsession. He humors my “day-cation” tendencies and I humor his.
Somehow – we just work.
