Jamie has always been a bit of a rabble rouser - from her tenacious and perseverant attitude as a child, to her passion for ensuring things were just – and throughout her journey of school, work, and life experiences, she has managed to harness that enthusiasm, and focus on the things that count.
A career history spanning retail jewelry design, business strategy among yoga pants and working to bring a nose ring into the insurance world, Jamie likes to ensure things remain interesting. Upon finally finding her balance - a corporate job, with serious creative outlets, and permission to be imperfect - Jamie now focuses on internally focused sales and strategy consulting, producing creative projects, and managing and developing people.
Having a work life in which she travels over the US, and ‘downtime’ that allows for a strong appreciation of food and the outdoors, crafts with nieces and nephews, and as many sports as she can get her hands on, she is inspired by the things that make people feel connected – and is a strong advocate for mental health and wellness. She has spent a significant amount of time exploring and writing about her own mental health journey, and feels a strong pull towards the JRCFs mission to promote human well-being and environmental rehabilitation – as well as how those things connect.
