Jamie O’Conner

Outreach Coordinator

Jamie O’Conner is the Family Voices of Minnesota Outreach Coordinator. She is mom to two children, 9-year-old Charlie and 11-year-old Norah. Norah is a bright, bubbly, musical, empathetic kid who was born with a rare genetic condition called Williams Syndrome (WS). Charlie is a curious, kind, sports-loving kid who is always on the go. When they join forces, Norah and Charlie are makers of great trouble and noise (and fun).

Before joining Family Voices, Jamie was a full-time mom and advocate. She is a Class 34 Partners in Policymaking graduate and has attended PACER workshops including Family Leadership Training. Jamie is a member of her local Special Education Community Advisory Committee (SECAC) and has a passion for advocating for inclusive education practices. For Jamie, the support and guidance from other parents in her journey as the parent of a child with a disability has been not just empowering but transformative. Many mentors have turned to life-long friends. Norah’s health, development and emotional well-being are immeasurably better because of the family support they have received along the way.

Jamie is a transplant to the Minneapolis area from the Carolinas and enjoys road trips exploring her new state. Her hobbies include reading, yoga, cooking, cake decorating and dance parties with her kids.
