Better Know an LF’er: Jamie Sartory

“Jamie’s spirit animal is the Rabbit: she is good-natured, alert, and spontaneous.  While landing a magnificent triple Salchow as a girl, Jamie made the brash decision that an easy road to celebrity via sequins and eyeshadow was not for her. The daughter of a culinary guru, Jamie learned to trust her taste and intuition, elevating the lowliest hoagie to haute cuisine by layering kettle chips between the cheese and tomato. She discovered that you can bypass vocational school, pursue an architecture degree over half a decade, and STILL emerge a master welder. Jamie’s journey away from the call of the ice, the halls of Cordon Bleu and the wilds of Alabama finally led her happily to Lake|Flato, where she is a master of communicating digitally – in graphics and sound bites. Here the Rabbit teaches us to overcome design timidity with a brave attitude, starting every day with this mantra:”  -Cameron Smith
