Jamie Meugniot, Program Coordinator (Guardian Scholars and Veteran Programs)

Jamie grew up in the San Fernando Valley and attended community college before transferring to Loyola Marymount University where she received her BBA in Marketing.  As a student, Jamie was heavily involved in the transfer student experience and served as an Orientation Coordinator, providing support to all incoming students.  Her passion working with and supporting students led her back to LMU after graduation and she became professional staff, serving in the role of Program Coordinator for Student Success in 2016.  Since starting at LMU, Jamie has been able to work on a multitude of projects and with a diverse group of students.  Jamie is looking forward to going back to school to receive a Master's in Business Administration.
