Jamie McLeod-Skinner has a strong commitment against discrimination in all forms. This is based, in part, on her own experience with homophobia, after coming out as a lesbian when she was a young adult. She strongly supports reproductive rights, protections for the LGBTQ community, and repealing voter ID laws.   She received Degrees in Engineering, Masters of Regional Planning with a focus on water, natural resource, and Indian Law. She managed reconstruction projects in war-torn Bosnia and designed water systems in rural Kosovo. When she returned to the US, the International Rescue Committee appointed her Regional Director of their San Jose office, where she led efforts to help refugees achieve self-sufficiency. She has eight years of elected experience while working full-time. After terming out of office, Jamie returned home to earn a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Oregon, focusing on Natural Resource and Water Law. She is married with four step children.
