Jamie Serlin’s first job out of college was as an intern at West Wing Writers, where her work was published in the Huffington Post and Washington Post and included in speeches for business, political, and nonprofit leaders.
She rejoined the West Wing Writers team in 2014 after two years on Capitol Hill, where she served in the office of Senator Chris Coons of Delaware — first as a legislative correspondent, and later as deputy press secretary. In both roles, she was responsible for translating the Senator’s positions on complex policy issues — from trade secret theft to the Keystone XL Pipeline — into clear and compelling prose. As deputy press secretary, she wrote public statements, press releases, and op-eds that were regularly featured in local and national publications.
Jamie graduated Phi Beta Kappa with distinction from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s in public policy and a minor in French.
Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Jamie now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
