All about Jamie!

As a proactive community and relationship builder, I love working at Purchase College given our diverse student and campus community who are open, eager, and hungry to learn and ask questions! Additionally, I find a lot of joy guiding and helping prospective students and their families as they explore their next steps in their education and career.

Fun Facts

  1. Prior to working at Purchase College, I worked in a variety of corporate, startup, arts, and freelance settings, wearing multiple hats in areas including, but not limited to event planning, marketing, recruitment, public relations, operations, consulting, diversity and inclusion, and social media.
  2. I was named after Jamie Buchman (portrayed by actress Helen Hunt) from the hit NBC 90’s sitcom Mad About You!
