Jaimie Woo served in the White House from age twenty-four to age twenty-five (until the end of the administration) as a Policy Analyst in the Office of the Vice President. She initially focused on Vice President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot initiative, health, and LGBTQ policy, though she later joined his Violence Against Women team and worked on policy and public engagement efforts to both combat domestic violence and sexual assault and improve bystander intervention. Before joining the White House, Jaimie managed economic justice advocacy campaigns on for U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG). Following her role at the White House, Jaimie served as Congressman Lloyd Doggett’s (D-TX35) communications director in the U.S. House of Representatives, where she was the only female Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) to hold said title in all congressional offices throughout her tenure. Jaimie is a Texan, a Floridian, and a proud first-generation daughter of Chinese immigrants. She holds a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology from Duke University and is pursuing a master’s degree in communications management at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Communications and Journalism. Jaimie currently works at Breakwater Studios, a full-scale production company and filmmaking studio dedicated to humanist storytelling.
