Marine Corps veteran Jamie Kincaid shares her amazing story
Jamie Kincaid was seven years away from retiring from the U.S. Marine Corps when a drunk driver hit her. Soon after, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which would turn out to be her first of four bouts with four separate cancers. But she perservered and used her G.I. Bill benefits to attend Brandman University. Kincaid began her education in 2012 and two months later, she was diagnosed with another aggressive form of cancer and was advised to put her education on hold – but she didn’t. Kincaid pushed on, maintained a 4.0 GPA, and recently received her bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education and is now working towards a master’s in Organizational Leadership at Brandman’s Irvine Campus. She was recently a featured guest on a radio talk show where she shared her story, talks about receiving theBryan Fazio Scholarship and credits the strong student support at Brandman as a key factor in her success.
