Jamie Greubel Poser was born in Princeton, N.J, on Wednesday, November 9, 1983. The native of Newtown, Penn. was a member of the track and field team at Cornell University and competed in the heptathlon and the pentathlon. She still currently holds multiple school records, including the heptatlon, pentathlon, freshman heptathlon and pentathlon, and the shuttle hurdle relay. She set the Ivy League meet record in the heptathlon at the Outdoor Heptagonal Championships in 2006. She was a four-time Heptagonal Champion. Greubel Poser finished 13th in the 2006 NCAA Division I Championships in Sacramento, Calif. She also competed on the field hockey team for a season.
Greubel Poser joined the U.S. bobsled team in the 2007-2008 season after her college track teammate encouraged her to try the sport. Her track background made running on ice a smooth transition for her. After spending time as a brakewoman, she opted to become a driver midway through her career after winning multiple medals on the America's Cup tour, and has emerged as one of the nation's most promising women's pilots. Greubel Poser teamed with Emily Azevedo to earn her first World Cup medal, silver, in La Plagne, France during the 2012-2013 season, and she went on to claim the 2014 Olympic bronze medal a year later with Aja Evans.
