In elementary school, while other kids were playing soccer and practicing violin, Jamie Serlin was studying vocabulary and earning perfect scores on the national WordMasters Challenge.
Her classmates learned then what her clients know now: Jamie has a way with words.
At West Wing Writers, she has written books, composed speeches and op-eds, and shaped communications strategy for Fortune 500 CEOs, Oscar-winning actors, and philanthropic and nonprofit leaders. Her words — on issues ranging from education, to immigration, to women in tech — have appeared in the New York Times, Time Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and WIRED and been delivered at conferences and commencement ceremonies around the world.
In 2016, she was a member of the on-site speechwriting team at the Democratic National Convention in her hometown of Philadelphia, where she helped elected officials and everyday Americans tell their stories to a national audience.
Prior to joining the West Wing Writers team, Jamie served as deputy press secretary for U.S. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware.
Jamie graduated Phi Beta Kappa with distinction from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s in public policy and a minor in French. She lives in Brooklyn, and is a proud mentor with Girls Write Now, a New York-based nonprofit serving high school writers.
