She is currently a high school teacher at Konawaena High School and a proud Teach for America 2017 Corps Member. Borromeo is pursuing a Master of Science Degree in Education at Johns Hopkins University School of Education with an anticipated graduation date of May 2020.
Named as one of "America's Top Women Mentoring Leaders" by WOW Magazine, Jamie uses her illuminating perspective to guide and empower future generations to become more philanthropic and socially responsible business leaders and career professionals–specifically in the Millennial cohort (those born between 1980-2000). As a former intern on Capitol Hill and a self proclaimed "yogi," Jamie has brought the practice of yoga and meditation to corporate events and universities where she promotes work-life balance in the 21st Century.
Along with her inaugural book, Young, Educated & Broke, as well as Millennial Musings–a blog written to engage her generation on how to transform society working from the inside, out–Jamie has developed retreats, leadership training and college tours that address what she believes is a major stumbling block to America’s long economic recovery: the inability to develop the next generation of innovative entrepreneurs and career professionals.
By focusing on Millennials, who will inherit the current economic and government policies of this current generation, she believes an intergenerational approach can change the trajectory of the country.
In addition to her work empowering and developing future generations,Borromeo has consulted for over a dozen Fortune 500 senior executives, elected officials, and community-based organizations on issues of economic development, public policy, supplier diversity, and government contracting.
As former Executive Director of the National Council of Asian American Business Associations (NCAABA,) Ms. Borromeo was responsible for creating the signature program of the organization, The NCAABA Supplier Diversity, where she managed accounts with: Wells Fargo, Bloomingdale’s, Apple, Southwest Airlines, Lockheed Martin Space Systems, and other U.S. based corporations.
She is also former President of The E&J Commission LLC, a marketing and contract strategies firm based in Washington, D.C., and co-founder of GenerationDrive Entrepreneurs Network–a national non-profit that mentors young adult start-up firms. She is currently based in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
