   A graduate of UW, Jo Marie earned her master of public administration and an undergraduate degree in business management with a minor in sociology. 

    Both natives of Laramie, Jo Marie and her husband James have three adult children. They stay busy at their home outside Laramie caring for their many animals, including dogs, horses and a cat. They love to spend time outdoors engaging in a variety of activities such as boating, camping, horseback riding, hiking and snowshoeing.

   Jamie joined the Political Science Department in the summer of 2006 serving as the Graduate Coordinator for the MPA and MA programs and is the face you'll see when entering our offices. Prior to joining the department, she gained UW experience in the College of Agriculture. Jamie earned her undergraduate degrees in Political Science and Environmental & Natural Resources and a Master of Public Administration here at UW. She serves on the City of Laramie Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and is working toward a High School teaching certificate.

   Originally from Newcastle, Jamie and her husband Brian are proud to claim Laramie as home. They enjoy exploring and playing outdoors in the region year round, sharing their adventures with a precocious three year old named Avery, who was joined by a brother this year named Bridger.

   All prospective and current students are welcome to request local tips and tours to learn why people love it here and why you'll be proud to call it home!
