Jamie Headshot 1

Jamie Roger, M.S.

Associate Director, Research

With each year of experience in the healthcare field, the community, friendships, and passion to help has grown exponentially for Jamie. Prior to joining Salem Oaks, Jamie has 4 years of experience in the human services field where she has helped individuals better understand their potentials in life.  Included in her experience is an internship with Yale University and the State of Connecticut that provided insight into helping individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse.

Jamie’s superior interpersonal skills have allowed her to connect with individuals struggling with different obstacles in their lives and has counseled them to be more aware of what they are capable of.  As a consultant in Higher Education, Jamie helped develop a Dietetic Internship program for a University of New Haven and through this, she has learned the motivation and patience that is needed for research and development.

With a Master’s Degree in Community Psychology, Jamie has a passion for better understanding how a person can reach the optimal quality of life in the face of diversity and obstacles at the individual and systemic levels.  She is driven to help people understand and work with one another more effectively across different social stratification.  She strives to fuse her knowledge of research, her passion for helping others better understand themselves and their own stories, and her desire to develop new resources to aid them in this process.
