Jamie Stack grew up in the area and graduated from Oil City High School in 2017, then went on to earn her associate’s degree in Physical Therapy Assistance from the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville.
She’s currently waiting to take her Board Exam, and is working at two local, young professional owned businesses—Core Goods and Eckert Chiropractic.
“I enjoy how personable the jobs are,” she said. “The coworkers and employers are very invested in their employees. I love much I have learned and how much I know they care about my growth.”
At Core Goods, Jamie helps customers, cooks, keeps the store stocked, and more, and at Eckert Chiropractic, she helps with childcare and various office tasks.
Jamie recently got engaged and is excited to marry her fiancé, Devon. Other future plans include pursing a more full-time job.
She’s not certain exactly where or in what field, but told us: “I am not limiting my future to what my degree is in. I want to achieve happiness in whatever life throws at me and wherever I am in the next few years.”
In her free time, Jamie can almost always be found with Devon, usually outdoors biking, walking, hiking, kayaking, and basically anything else outside.
In Venango County, she enjoys experiencing the history and learning facts about how this area was created. She also appreciates the beautiful nature and close-knit community, and related it to Cheers—”You want to go where everybody knows your name.”
Jamie is enjoying working in Venango County and is also excited to see where her future takes her.
Juliet Hilburn recently joined the team at the Northern Pennsylvania Regional College as Student Success Specialist. She graduated from Mercyhurst University in May 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in history and earned a cumulative 4.0 GPA. In high school, she also graduated as Valedictorian.
Juliet was born and raised in Titusville, and continues to live here, though her position takes her all over Forest, Crawford, and Venango Counties.
She enjoys her new position and, looking to the future, hopes to continue as a higher education professional helping students succeed in their post-secondary careers. She also looks forward to continuing her own education by pursuing a master’s degree in Communications or a related field.
In the community, Juliet serves on the Board of Directors for the Titusville Council on the Arts and plays flute in the Oil City volunteer ensemble Mostly Brass. She can also often be found reading and is a part of the Benson Memorial Library book club.
In college, Juliet had a minor in film studies, so she enjoys watching movies, especially at The Movies at Cranberry. She’s a fan of local events, too, like BridgeFest in Oil City and AppleFest in Franklin.
“I very much wish to remain in the area where my family is located,” Juliet told us. “Venango County is so scenic and beautiful at all times of the year.”
Like many, Juliet loves the wooded hillsides and gorgeous historic architecture, as well as the people here. “It’s nice to be greeted with a smile everywhere you go,” she said.
Congratulations on the new position, Juliet, and welcome to FLEX!
