Before Kennedy Library, jaime has learned and worked primarily with trash, beginning in the history and visual arts departments at Princeton University. She earned an M.A. in Decorative Arts, Design History at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City, learning from interdisciplinary questions about cleanliness, beauty, and value in material objects and their relation to whiteness. She has worked in waste management, numerous museum education departments, and private corporate archives in Princeton, New York, LA, and Chicago, always working to rethink ideas about the “public,” accessibility, and circulation of knowledge.
