Jaimie graduated from Montana State University with a degree in biology and, after several years working in seasonal positions and lab environments, she decided to pursue her long-time passion and make a new career in the photographic arts. After completing an intensive program at Rocky Mountain School of Photography in 2006, she put her skills in photography and digital editing to work as an assistant and editor for several local photographers. When the Southeast beckoned her back, she was excited to be hired by UTC where she has transitioned into the full-time marketing and event photographer. She provides photographic services to all campus departments by capturing marketing images for UTC’s website as well as print and media publications, photographing students in many aspects of student life, and documenting historically significant events. She is rarely seen around campus without a camera in hand. She also continues her work as a freelance and fine art photographer.
Always living in mountainous, adventure-driven locales, Jaimie has felt at home in Chattanooga, satisfying her need for natural spaces along with a dose of social fun and city life.
