#NotRoutine: Jamie Stelter

jamie-homepage-imageWe took a short break from our #NotRoutine series of interviews about the lives of interesting women for August and are excited to be back for the fall with one of our favorite women. If you are a New Yorker and have a commute (that would be most of the city including the Stowaway team) then there is a strong chance you start your day with Jamie Stelter on New York 1. As the traffic anchor for the most important news channel in the city her Rail and Road Report is critical to keeping us on time. More than once we’ve run out the door without our makeup done because Jamie’s reports got us the details we needed on our delayed trains and helped us avoid being late for work. You could consider her a reports one of the inspirations for Stowaway. Sometimes life gets in the way and you need your essentials with you in your purse amirite? So, how does the woman who keeps New York on time spend her time?
