Jamie has been in the fitness and wellness industry for over fifteen years. Her first job was as a gym front desk attendant when she was just 13 years old. Ever since then she has been immersed in the fitness industry one way or another from teaching spin or group exercise classes to hosting sports nutrition seminars and training personal clients. In the last decade Jamie has worked as a personal trainer, nutritionist, and group exercise instructor throughout California, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Her clients span across many different ages and fitness levels, including geriatrics, postpartum, and high school athletes. In addition to her CrossFit Level 1 Certification Jamie holds the NSCA Certified Strength Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) Certification and is a certified Clinical Nutritionist.
Jamie grew up playing almost every sport and was recruited by multiple Division One colleges for both track and soccer. She chose to run track (400m, 800m) at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. An ACL tear ended her collegiate career but Jamie went on to graduate with her Bachelor of Science in Health and Exercise Science. Jamie’s keen interest in nutrition caused her to continue her education and get her Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from University of Bridgeport.
To combine her passion for nutrition and fitness Jamie competed in bodybuilding shows for four years obtaining her Professional Athlete Status in three drug-tested organizations (WNBF, IFPA, PNBA). However, Jamie missed training for athletic performance so she decided to try CrossFit after relocating to Conshohocken, PA. Her original plan was to only do CrossFit 2-3x a week to supplement her regular gym training. However, that idea lasted less than two weeks before Jamie cancelled all of her gym memberships and became a regular at Thermal. Jamie competes in local competitions and is a member of the Thermal Wodapalooza Elite division team. She loves the physical and mental challenges CrossFit presents as well as the countless opportunities for self-improvement. But most of all she enjoys the community, the endless training partners and wishes she started CrossFit sooner!
If Jamie is not at Thermal riding the assault bike or listening to club music she is working as a Wellness Manager for a digital software company helping millions of online users to engage in a healthier lifestyle. She loves helping others live a healthy holistic life balancing fitness, nutrition, sleep and stress.
