While she had many career aspirations growing up, being a writer was etched into her soul. But Jamie could have never imagined or planned the path God wanted her to travel in her life; she supposes Oprah’s saying is true: God really can dream a bigger dream for you than you can for yourself.
Georgia College & State University is where she discovered her passion and purpose: informing and empowering women through writing. Using her words, Jamie’s goal is to inspire and empower women to live their most fabulous lives, however they define this. This goal is realized through the vehicles of her blog, For Colored Gurls, programs and books. She is also passionate about assisting small businesses and solopreneurs in creating copy that will help their companies grow.
Jamie’s mission is multifaceted: to motivate women to dream big, encourage them to define success for themselves and to inspire them to live the lives they truly desire and deserve. She will continue to walk in her purpose, showing women that they can and should go after whatever they want in life and helping them recognize they can do anything!
With a belief that ALL things are possible with God, Jamie lives by the words, “Feel the fear, and do it anyway.” She is happily married to Chris and resides in Anderson, South Carolina. In her non-working life, Jamie is a nail polish addict, an avid magazine collector and a huge fan of chocolate.
