Jamie grew Mixte out of her desire to change the typical agency culture. She strived to build a workplace where people could be their true selves, not sacrificing personal values to earn a paycheck. At the same time, she wanted to offer changemakers the chance to work with an agency free from conflicts of interest.
As the Principal, Strategy + Community of Mixte, Jamie supports the team in doing what they do best — serving clients and creating effective digital marketing and public relations programs. As needed, she takes on a strategic and advisory role with Mixte’s clients, always pushing the team to remain true to community-driven values and to put equity at the forefront of all the work Mixte does.
From regionally based nonprofits to the world’s largest nonprofits and funders, Jamie enjoys digging into the communication challenges that Mixte’s clients face, earning four national awards, two best in shows, and several dozen awards of recognition throughout the years.
In her years at Mixte, Jamie has led the agency to win the distinguished PR Team of the Year award for its commitment to values-driven work and its dedication to supporting paid job training for new voices to enter into the field. She is an accomplished speaker at national and international conferences, ranging from topics such as how to address the lack of diversity in the PR industry to messaging for policy change.
Jamie is currently the Diversity Committee Chair for the Public Relations Society of America San Diego & Imperial County chapter.
Since leading Mixte, Jamie has been recognized as a CEO of the Year and one of San Diego’s 50 most influential leaders. Her company has been honored with a Small Business Advocate of the Year award from the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, and, before going remote, earned top honors from the League of American Cyclists and iCommute San Diego for its commuter-friendly program.
