Jamie specializes in helping individuals create and live a balanced and abundant life through doable and sustainable habit and lifestyle change using the unique “find the fit, keep it real, make it simply easy” approach.
- Find the fit acknowledges the unique nature, needs, and goals of the individual and puts them into a personalized lifestyle plan in partnership with the client’s own inner wisdom.
- Keep it real acknowledges that life is messy and everyone comes with attachments and baggage. Strive for the ideal while honoring the real of where you are in any moment.
- Make it simply easy is all about breaking down the seemingly big process of change into manageable steps forward. With each step you hold, you anchor in a habit. Each new habit furthers the momentum of success, which keeps you up and moves you forward.

Though her professional background is seemingly diverse, Jamie finds that when used together, the tools create magical and deeply transformative experiences. The time tested, five-thousand year Ayurvedic model of health helps you make sense of your unique constitution, understand the meanings of your symptoms and dis-ease conditions, and see with new awareness how your choices and the world affects you. While Ayurveda gives you a complete HOW TO on every aspect of life, sometimes knowing WHAT to do isn’t always enough. You might know exactly what to do that is best for you, yet still find yourself stuck in patterns and habits that create imbalance, inner angst, and disruptive symptoms in your body, life, and relationships. This is where professional coaching comes in. Jamie has discovered, for herself and her clients, that coaching adds the missing layer to be most successful in moving forward on your journey.
Being a professed life-long learner, Jamie’s 3500+ hours of professional studies have included Ayurveda medicine, advanced study of aromatherapy, life coaching and inspired learning facilitation, numerous bodywork techniques including Swedish, integrative, pre-natal, neuromuscular therapy, shiatsu massage, craniosacral therapy, somato-emotional release, polarity, reiki, Ayurveda energy healing, Ayurveda bodywork and Panchakarma therapies; hatha and kundalini yoga, transcendental and vipassana meditation, and neurolinguistic programming.
In addition to formal studies, much of her journey of self-expansion and consciousness has come from living these practices as part of her daily life. Jamie strives to bring her self-care practices into her daily personal and professional activities, living the healthy lifestyle she coaches her clients on. In living an aligned life, she finds greater ease, balance and bliss. And the journey continues. Though Jamie has enjoyed major transformations in the course of her life and studies, she also continues to have real and challenging human experiences, such as her ongoing quest for the right balance between structure and flexibility mirrored by her dual pitta-vata nature. She holds the space for being committed to fully live her soul purpose with an awakened consciousness while recognizing that balance comes from being less than perfect in this chaotic, imbalanced modern life. Staying sane and balanced to her, means using the 80/20 rule – 80% of the time supporting herself with alignment, 20% dealing with what is and answering the call of attachments with eyes wide open!
In addition to her private practice, she served on staff at Kanyakumari Ayurvedic and Yoga Training Center in Glendale, WI teaching business and marketing classes, supervising interns, and being the Internship Coordinator through the close of the school in 2018. She is the creator of the transformational group programs: “Creating Health & Harmony”, “Healing from the Inside Out: the chakras and beyond”, “Healthy Weight, Healthy You”, and the “Be Your Best Cleanse”. She is also a contributing author in the books: “Yoga in America” and “Your Better Body: The Woman’s Holistic Guide for Health & Wellness” as well as being a regular writer for local magazines and online wellness sites
A native of Colorado, Jamie lived in Brookfield, WI with her family for 20 years before moving to Overland Park, KS in 2017. She loves to read, hike, bike, ski, play games, play in general, explore, learn and travel – which has included her leading wellness retreats to Peru, Costa Rica, and India.
My personal mission is to make the world a better place.
I started off my career thinking I would go into international social work. Instead, I found that the personal level of interaction supporting people in a holistic, expansive way was a better fit. But my passion of supporting our world continues. I aim to do this not directly through political mechanisms or social transformation, but indirectly at the level of individual well-being and expansion of consciousness. My belief is that this “better place” starts with each of us becoming healthier, happier, and in harmony with our authentic, infinite selves and living in balance with the world around us.
One person becoming healthy and whole creates a ripple that spreads out first to your family, then to your community, and slowly out to the larger world. One person at a time CAN make a difference. As each person steps into and lives from a space of health and harmony, so, too, can we create a healthy and harmonious world.
