Jamie graduated from Labrador Straits Academy in 2015. He is from L’Anse au Loup, and is currently enrolled in the marine diesel mechanic program at Marine Institute in St. John’s. Jamie also completed a program at College of the North Atlantic in St. Anthony prior to commencing his studies in St. John’s.
Over the past several years, Jamie has helped coach a novice minor hockey group. He has also helped a local recreation centre with planning activities for (and supervising) a group of young kids. Additionally, he has volunteered his services to the local Community Youth Network, where he helped prepare for special events.
Jamie has worked on student projects for the past few summers. In 2013 he worked with the L’Anse Au Loup Harbour Authority, and in 2014 and 2015, he worked with his local town council. He also adds that he is highly interested in the mechanics of engines and enjoys solving challenging problems. Since working in a local garage doing hands-on work with different mechanical devices, Jamie believes the marine diesel mechanic program is a good fit for him.
