Catie Jamieson

2022-2023 International Thespian Officer

Educational Theatre Association

Catie Jamieson is a 2022-2023 International Thespian Officer from Troupe 6309.  Her goal as an International Thespian Officer (ITO) is to advocate for mental health awareness as part of the #TheatreInOurSchools efforts and other theatre advocacy movements. Catie feels that it is important for teens to be taught the importance of mindfulness and to have healthy stress-release tactics. By advocating for mental health on a national level, she hopes that Thespians will feel more empowered and heard.
