Jamie Perkins is eager to jump into Kids Hope USA to have a front row seat in watching children’s lives being transformed. Jamie graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with majors in Christian Education and Children’s Ministry. She spent a few years after college working on the Willow Creek Community Church staff in the Children’s Ministry and later assisted one of the church’s teaching pastors before taking a break to raise her own kids. It is her belief that building into kids and engaging the heart of a child will forever impact the future of generations to come.
Jamie resides in the suburbs of Chicago with her two daughters, Mya and Sofia. Together they share a desire for community where they serve in their local church and are deeply rooted and involved in their school. When Jamie isn’t busy in mom world, she enjoys writing, listening to country music and being outside in God’s creation – all while finishing a cup of hot coffee.
