About Jamie Perez

Jamie Perez is the owner and chief storyteller at Beyond Words Productions – a videography + storytelling company that focuses on creating heartfelt and emotive videos for businesses and nonprofits. Jamie found her way to entrepreneurship after spending 6 years as a Broadcast TV News reporter. She took on almost every role in the newsroom, but her primary position (and the position where she gained the most skills telling stories) was as an MMJ (multi-media journalist). As an MMJ, Jamie was a one-person show: from finding the story ideas, filming them, editing them, presenting the story live on air and writing up the story for the station’s website all on deadline every day. Originally from California, Jamie worked in Sioux City, Iowa at the ABC station for 2 years before moving to Madison, WI’s CBS station. She covered political campaigns, interviewed celebrities, reported live in the middle of Midwest blizzards, and told stories on the best and worst days of people’s lives. After leaving the industry she thought she would be in forever, Jamie found her way to entrepreneurship and hasn’t imagined looking back. Since starting her business two years ago, Jamie’s videos have helped nonprofits raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, helped for-profits gain hundreds of thousands of dollars in new lead generation, and helped people hire in a stubborn employment market. Jamie’s business motto is: “If a picture says a thousand words, my videos will leave people Beyond Words.”
