Staff Academy Program Manager
Jaime Swank is a Program Manager who works with NDTC’s Staff Academy digital cohort. Since helping to develop the inaugural Staff Academy program in 2019, Jaime has since supported over 115 Staff Academy cohort members to help them succeed in the program and their job searches. Jaime graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Korean Language and Culture. While at Wash U, Jaime won an award for having a record of activism in exposing inequality, empowering disadvantaged communities, and fostering social change. Jaime entered the world of politics after graduation as a canvasser for reproductive rights and distributed organizer for the Missouri Democratic Coordinated Campaign. You can often catch Jaime’s cat Boo on any video calls because they are inseparable. Outside of work, Jaime also enjoys exploring new areas of Chicago, singing karaoke (“My Heart Will Go On” or Britney Spears), and doing yoga.
