A Little About Jamie…

 

I’m the author of the literary collection “Three Stories and Some Poems.”

I’m the owner of The Grove Oak Store.. the first woman to ever be on DeKalb County’s Parks Board. I won a leadership award from the local newspaper and the Knesset gave me a certificate of honour for my outstanding help and support.

I have brought commerce back to my deserted hometown by opening the only store. I bring the arts to the community, have opened a public library, preserved our local history in a museum. I have lobbied to replace the missing Trail of Tears markers in town, spoken with the governor of Alabama, and our state representatives on the town’s behalf. Mainly concerning our local state park, Buck’s Pocket State Park. I have also made attempts at addressing safety concerns in town.

Documentary film maker, “We The People.” Its a documentary about the struggles of the Sioux Indians in North Dakota, the Dakota Access Pipeline, risks to our water, and history of Native American mistreatment. Also, has an additional portion “We The People Too” that discusses miscalculation of Natives on the census.

Some other stuff.
