Jamie has been working in the dental profession since the age of 15. Enjoying this field, she decided to go to OCCC to pursue a career in dental hygiene. After graduating in 1987, it took a few years for Jamie to find the perfect place to practice. It was in 1991 when she found that place, here with Dr. Gary Berson.
Jamie is busy when not at work enjoying life, which she does with her husband, John Sohns, and fur baby, Rudi .
Jamie loves teaching Zumba, vacationing, boating and spending time with friends and family.
