She builds relationships with people and has a strong connection to her clients based on her history and life experience.
When she is not working for her clients, Jamie enjoys the adventures of motherhood, hiking with her husband and German Shepherd, Piper, as well as kayaking with her family in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
