Jaime graduated with honors from Eckerd College with a B.A. in Creative Writing and Literature, and then from University of Miami with an M.F.A. in Creative Writing. She wrote and taught in Florida, Colorado, and Pennsylvania; her academic career allowed her to develop her pedagogical, organizational, and creative skills. However, after the birth of her son, in 2006, her interest in applying these skills took a different shape.
While her son suffered from digestive issues, Jaime suffered from insomnia, stress, fatigue, a resulting sugar & caffeine addiction, and a general put-mama’s-needs-on-the-back-burner syndrome. Her long ago passion for health and wellness was re-ignited. Like many, Jaime & her family needed to make time to eat well and take care of themselves. Organic, seasonal, whole foods (and very simple, delicious, home cooked meals) became a large part of their healing process. Not only did Jaime lose the weight she gained during pregnancy quickly and easily, she and her husband were amazed to find that their long suffered digestive issues were eliminated as well!
This new way of eating naturally inspired her to slow down and to make time for all the other aspects of life that provide nourishment—friends, yoga, exercise, meditation, literature,…and her official education in holistic nutrition at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. She had the privilege of studying under world renowned health experts like Joshua Rosenthal, Andrew Weil, David Wolfe, Barry Sears, Marion Nestle, David Katz, and John Douillard. She gradually incorporated what she learned about raw foods, superfoods, probiotic foods, vitamins, minerals, & supplements, and more into her family’s daily diet with life-changing results. Jaime is certified by Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Columbia University and accredited by the Association of Drugless Practitioners.
The journey is not over! Jaime continues to learn about the vast and extraordinary field of health & wellness, to work with even more extraordinary clients—and to pay attention to the changing needs of her body! She is dedicated to helping herself, her family, her community, and her clients achieve optimum health and harmony in their lives.
