Jami began her TSA experience when she was teaching pre-engineering classes and taking her students to TSA and robotics competitions. She quickly saw the value of TSA competitions for her pre-engineering students and her local chapter made TSA their priority over the competitions that only had robotics. She was able to take students to two national TSA competitions before leaving the classroom and accepting her position as TSA State Advisor. At one of these national TSA competitions she was named Arkansas TSA Chapter Advisor of the Year for High School, and her students received Chapter Excellence awards at both national conferences they attended. She took her students to regional and state competitions every year she was teaching. Now she is the one organizing these events for Arkansas TSA students. Her goal is to get more schools to see the value of TSA as a CTSO for their STEM students, and grow the organization to the level it is in many of our neighboring states. With STEM education as a priority in our state, she sees TSA as an integral component of STEM students' educational experience.
