About Author Jamie Porter

Operations Assistant, Travel Oregon Jamie Porter graduated from Oregon State University in 2007. She earned an English degree with a minor in Spanish. She was born and raised in Salem, Oregon but enjoyed the 4 short years she lived in Corvallis, Oregon rooting on the Beavers at every home football, basketball and baseball game. She is passionate about college football and although her college days are over she finds herself returning to Beaver Nation as a dedicated fan and enthusiastic tailgater. When she is not working as the Operations Assistant at Travel Oregon or watching the Beavers, she can be found browsing used bookstores, running, traveling to Spanish speaking countries (she has spent her traveling days in various parts of Mexico and Spain), or traveling throughout Oregon ready to pitch a tent and throw in a pole. Jamie has a great appreciation for the Oregon outdoors as she was raised camping, fishing, and skiing-her first experience water skiing was at 5 years old! Her latest interests are learning all about Travel Oregon, real estate, and spending weekends in Corvallis and Bend, Oregon. She is addicted to Google-ing anything and everything and eating Reese's Peanut Butter cups on the regular. Although she grew up with a passion for teaching children she now has this unexplainable desire to teach everyone about Oregon since working for Travel Oregon.
