Where shall I start? I’m Jamie. I have three cool little kids, a husband whom I adore, and big dreams I’m working to accomplish. Since about 1999 I’ve been dedicated to positively impacting the lives of young people. I started as a high school cheer coach, and then spent 8 years teaching business courses at my alma mater. I liked teaching, but I missed the joy and satisfaction of being a coach and a mentor. It’s been almost 15 years since I last coached cheer, and I still have close relationships with many of the girls from my squad. That is what motivates me… getting to know young women and making a positive impact on their lives.
In 2010, while eating an average school lunch, I googled 4 words that would change my life, “mentor for teen girls.” Those words led me to find a woman name Tami Walsh who runs a coaches training program called Teen Wisdom, Inc. After completing my training with Tami, I opened up a small, private coaching practice in Bellingham, WA. Fast forward five years, and my practice is thriving. Every day that I go to work, I get to make a difference in the life a girl. Pretty great, right?
On a personal note, my late teens and early twenties were ROUGH. I didn’t have anyone that I felt I could talk to. I had a great family, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell them what was going on, so I chose to keep it all to myself. I obviously survived on my own, and you would too, but it is so much nicer to have someone to talk to. No judgment, just a caring ear to listen to your story and help you make a plan for your future. Trust me, it can make all the difference in the world.
My goal for Girl Reimagined is to inspire generations of girls to live life to their potential. I’ve gathered a team of experienced, dedicated women to help me accomplish this goal and we are here, ready to help you get the life you want. We can’t wait to get started.
