Cutout copy and former press secretary in the us senate and house
Jamie Corley is the founder of Cutout Copy, a communications firm with clients nationwide.
Corley honed her communications and strategy skills as a staffer on Capitol Hill. As national press secretary for U.S. Senator Bob Corker, she spoke daily with reporters about the senator’s position on a range of policy issues, including housing finance reform, immigration and health care reform, and energy independence.
For three years she served as communications director and spokesperson for Congresswoman (now U.S. Senator) Shelley Moore Capito, where she oversaw message development, media relations, speechwriting and social media strategy. Working for a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee, Corley became well-versed in banking policy, specifically how Dodd-Frank impacted community bank lending. She also launched the West Virginia Youth Advisory Program, a policy summit for high school students.
Previously she served as co-captain for regional Pennsylvania press outreach at the 2012 Republican National Convention, as deputy press secretary and legislative correspondent for U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson, and as a White House intern. She was a 2010 Fund for American Studies (TFAS) Policy Fellow and remains an active member of the Republican Communications Association and the Senate Press Secretaries Association.
Corley attended Southern Methodist University as a Hunt Scholar. She spent a year abroad studying history and international relations at the London School of Economics, where she was elected by her peers to serve as their Student Union representative. She was recognized as one of the 20 most influential students at the LSE for her work organizing a student-run American political debate.
Originally from St. Louis, MO, she resides in San Francisco, CA. She’s an avid acrylic painter; her firm’s name, Cutout Copy, is inspired by her favorite artist, Henri Matisse.
