Jamie Miller is Senior Vice President and Director of Engineering Development at Sellen Construction where she loves helping young engineers find their strengths and passions and craft that into a career where they are happy and excited about their work.
As a kid, Jamie’s favorite book, or the first book she remembers reading multiple times, was Little Women. As a “tomboy” with an independent streak, she connected with Jo and her complicated friendship with Laurie, while loving how she could see bits of herself in all of the sisters.
Jamie’s ideal Sunday is sitting in the sun (any season), reading a book, with a cup of tea or a cocktail in hand, and kids and dogs running amok, finishing the day with a family dinner where everyone can connect before the start of another week. When she’s not doing SAL Board things, Jamie can be found at a hockey rink anywhere in the Pacific NW, including Canada and Alaska, watching her son fly up and down the ice.
The emoji that best represents Jamie is any laughing emoji because she firmly believes in the therapeutic power of laughter and loves to laugh herself. She has occasionally laughed at an inappropriate moment and been accused of not “reading the room,” but Jamie believes you can often find humor in the least expected places.
