Jamey Pratt is a Senior Planner at the Montgomery County Planning Department. Jamey earned his Master of Community Planning degree from the University of Cincinnati in 2012 and joined Montgomery Planning soon thereafter. As a planner, Jamey has reviewed development and conditional use applications, worked on master plans, maintained environmental data in GIS, and taken several other miscellaneous projects through Planning Board approval, such as an annexation case in Laytonsville and the expansion of Maryland’s Priority Funding Area in Burtonsville.
Prior to becoming a planner, Jamey worked in the information technology sector as a programmer and professional services consultant. He began his career in IT at the U.S. Census Bureau in Suitland, Maryland, just outside Washington, DC, before moving to Denver where he worked for many years at a company that wrote software for the financial industry. Between Denver and his return to the Washington region—he currently resides in Wheaton, Maryland—Jamey served for two years teaching English in Bulgaria as a Peace Corps volunteer. After his Peace Corps service, Jamey decided to go back to school to become an urban planner. He chose the University of Cincinnati because of its Peace Corps Fellowship program.
