When did her love for the kitchen start?
As a teenager Jamie enjoyed working with her dad in the kitchen as he often experimented with different cooking techniques including preparing breads, candies and jams.
The passion continued from there -- Jamie received her degree in Home Economics Education from Oklahoma State University, in Stillwater, Okla. Her previous experience includes working as a Culinary Instructor for Tulsa Technology and Bama Cooking Schools and teaching High School Home Economics.
When asked what her favorite part of the Cooking School experience is, Jamie replied, “It is the people that come to the cooking school that really make it so much fun. Whether someone is at the school for the first time or the tenth there is always something new to be experienced and fun to be had with new recipes and great prizes.”
Jamie resides in Owasso, Okla., with her husband and three sons. Some of her favorite activities include cooking for family and friends, canning, cake decorating and gardening.
