Jaymie, being a huge super nerd and school addict, completed her first degree in nutritional sciences from Oklahoma State University. After teaching for a bit, she went on to complete her BSN at The University of Tulsa where she then went on to work in critical care. After 8 years in the ICU as a certified critical care nurse (CCRN), she was invited to join an inpatient palliative care team where she found her passion for advanced care planning, palliative care, symptom management and hospice education. In 2015 she completed her advanced practice degree from The University of South Alabama and became an Adult-Gerontological Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. In June of 2017, Jaymie joined the PDC Rx team where she continues to work towards education on end-of-life care. At home, Jaymie stays busy keeping up with her 2 daughters – Haylee (10) and Emma (5), as well as a rambunctious and naughty puppy named Kubwa (Swahili for giant) and rescue kitten named Duma (Swahili for cheetah), and her husband, Jason, of 15 years. When not in the office, Jaymie can be found boating at the lake, traveling (particularly passionate about medical mission trips and health advocacy in Tanzania), or attempting to be at at the gym.
