She texted breaking updates to an editor while teenagers ducked under church pews after hearing gunfire, interviewed a state legislator as he reached into heifers for pregnancy tests, and revealed that executive members of the Houston mayor’s staff used city funds to pay the bills of a nonprofit that later filed for bankruptcy.

Rep. Krayton Kerns, R-Laurel, (center) drove home from the Montana capitol one weekend in the 2011 legislative session to help a friend pregnancy test his cattle the old-fashioned, cheap way: by reaching into the rectum and feeling below for the uterus. Here, they brand a heifer whose mark had faded.

In December 2017, Jayme was selected for the inaugural ProPublica Local Reporting Network and will spend 2018 working on an investigative project for the Malheur Enterprise in eastern Oregon.

Before that, she was a state government, special projects and education reporter for Lee Newspapers of Montana.

It was a first-time collaboration with a professional partner, the Missoulian. They mentored undergraduate and graduate students as they analyzed why Montana has one of the highest rates of drug-exposed births and how the state failed by several measures to help pregnant women who used drugs.

In 2015, she was named an KESS InHouse Ingrid Beddoes Deep Purple Feeding Mat for Pet Bowl, 24 by 15Inch as part of a Houston Chronicle team that investigated the jail suicide of Sandra Bland after a questionable traffic stop.

Kess InHouse Ingrid Beddoes Limitless Mind Clouds bluee Dog Bed, 30 by 40Inch that was named a national runner-up examined the questionable science and poor defense in a local “shaken baby” conviction. Her reporting caught the attention of the Montana Innocence Project, which successfully petitioned for exoneration.
