Jamie shares the Animal Justice Party’s vision that animals are our equals and deserve protection and respect. Jamie believes that we cannot argue that humans are somehow more special in our ability to feel pain and suffering, than animals are. Jamie has actively been involved in various campaigns and rallies including Melbourne Pig Save, Ban Live Export, Stop the Slaughter (of seals), and Ban Jumps Racing. She is vegan and also trained as a Wildlife rescuer through Wildlife Victoria. Jamie holds a Bachelor of Social Science in Youth Work and worked for many years with offenders in a youth detention centre. She also worked for 12 years in disability and aged care.
