Jamie Koenig

Jamie is joining CJC for the 2019-2020 school year as the Policy Intern from the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration. Previously, she interned at Urban Alliance, helping youth aged 18-24 navigate post-high school life, and also worked at the Restaurant Opportunities Center of NY, where she did research about the childcare needs of restaurant workers. Her direct, on-the-ground work reinforced the importance of effective policy. Jamie’s interest in labor comes from its intersectionality and how it offers an effective method for addressing almost all human rights, ranging from housing to healthcare.

Jamie’s first job was as a swim instructor, working with all levels, from beginners to competitive swimmers.
