Beth Jameson, MA

Pronouns: she/her/hers

As Administrative Coordinator for the Block Career Services Center and the Food and Nutrition Innovation Institute, I coordinate event and workshop logistics, communicate vital Career Center information to students, alumni, staff, and faculty, and provide resume reviews and feedback for Friedman students & alumni. With an academic background in food studies and a passion for workforce development, I love working with Friedman students and alumni to support their discovery and learning throughout their career path! I hold a BA in Sociology from Boston University, and an MA in Food Studies from Chatham University’s Falk School of Sustainability.

Before coming to the Friedman School, I worked in program administration for an eastern Massachusetts youth development and food justice nonprofit, managed and implemented a career development program for young people at a local housing authority, and worked in office administration at a community center in downtown Boston. In my free time, you’ll usually find me talking about, reading about, or making food. I also love traveling, crafting, and spending time in the outdoors.

Food Fun Fact

I once made 500 homemade marshmallows (in multiple flavors) for a friend’s wedding reception.
