Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jamie Goldsmid, Board Member
I was raised in the Netherlands, where after completing two years of college I moved to the United States, transferring to the University of Missouri, in Columbia. In 2004, I completed my Bachelor's degree in Strategic Communications and International Business.
After college I worked as a media planner for an advertising agency in St. Louis until life took me to Germany for next five years, where both of my wonderful children, Jasper and Jade were born. During that time I held several positions within Army Child and Youth Services, the DoDEA schools, and Military Human Resources. The last one stuck as I have worked for the Military Personnel Division on Fort Huachuca since 2010 and I love serving the Soldiers, their Families, and the wider For Huachuca community. During the last few years, I was given the opportunity to supervise and further my professional development, to include serving as the Installation Voting Assistance Officer since 2016.
Being raised multilingual, I speaks three languages fluently and have enjoyed being able to use these abilities in civil service, as well as on a contract basis, in support of our government. The Sierra Vista area is wonderful place to live: Jasper and Jade attend the Fort Huachuca Middle and Elementary Schools, and the larger community serves our hobbies quite well. We love to; be outdoors, go swimming, biking, or hiking in the mountains. My family often visits from the Netherlands as they love spending time together, as well as this wonderful weather and the beautiful scenery.
My free time is spent reading, drawing, painting, and watching movies with my kids. I also like to volunteer in the community with my friends. A passion of mine that started very young and continues today is traveling, with many destinations still to discover.
