Jamie joined the Kenworthy staff in March of 2013 and quickly became an integral part of the Kenworthy. In 2014 she was promoted to Operations Director and can often be found behind the curtain making events run smoothly. Before joining us at the Kenworthy she obtained her Masters in Education with an emphasis in English from Western Oregon University. She loves to be a part of the Moscow community and finds time to not only volunteer for the Alternative Giving Market of the Palouse, Government Affairs Committee for the Moscow Chamber of Commerce, and Farmers Market Commission but also Know Your Government a 4-H program that educates 8th and 9th grade students about the power of government. She’s excited to make her storytelling debut with Story Story Night and is looking forward to finding the Gold at the end of the rainbow.
BECAUSE EVERYONE HAS A STORY
Story Story Night fosters powerful connections that change lives—through the courageous act of true storytelling. Our vision is that all members of our community (and beyond) will be inspired to tap into the power and possibility of story.
Spontaneous. Cathartic. Inspiring. Story Story Night is a live storytelling phenomenon/nonprofit organization that provides a forum and a format for the community to share real experiences on stage and without notes. With a wide range of shows and studios, Story Story Night explores the power and possibility of personal narratives and helps people of different perspectives connect and reflect on the common threads that unite us all.
