She is a Filipina-American from San Francisco and graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a minor in Public Service & Community Engagement.
After graduating, she received her RN license and worked at the private non-profit organization, Community Services Agency of Mountain View. For 4 years, she provided direct support to frail, low income, and homeless seniors in the community to prevent avoidable hospital admissions and increase their quality of life through home visits, health education, referrals, and advocacy.
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jaemie coincidentally transitioned to her current role as an acute care hospital discharge planner at Washington Hospital in Fremont. By educating patients on their choices and coordinating post-acute care services, Jaemie helped facilitate safe and smooth discharges, even during a time of limited resources brought forth by the pandemic.
Jaemie has also worked with other local agencies, including the California Department of State Hospitals, San Francisco City Impact & Academy, the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments, Dignity Health, County of San Francisco Human Services Agency – Child Protective Services, Hill Physicians Medical Group, and more. Jaemie aims to use her experiences in healthcare to advocate for health policies that protect and uplift vulnerable populations.
