I like to think that you can tell a lot about a person by the "About Me" page.
Personally, I like the ones that sum it all up in one snappy paragraph - like those six-word stories that blow your mind. Unfortunately, I usually get carried away. Or maybe I'm just not that much of a wordsmith. Either way, I promise to repress my inner narcissist.
Hi there. I'm Jamie, but some people call me James. I'm an old-school New York writer and Type-A realistic optimist who, probably like you, is still trying to figure it all out. Always a bit of a black sheep, constantly misstepping and adjusting, and doing my best to stress less, laugh more, and make the most of it all.
My husband tells me I'm "a leaf blowing in the wind." Not sure how I feel about that, but somehow I rode that wind here, so there you go. I'm a former expressive arts therapist turned personal trainer and health coach who went on to develop health coaching courses. I've also worked as the Spotlight Writer for the National Stuttering Association, an organization near and dear to my heart.
I've written about holistic wellness, including mindfulness and relationships, for over ten years. As of (post-COVID) 2020, I'm a mother in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York. Since then, I've embraced the role of mama blogger through lulu letters. I'm a mother to possibly the most extroverted COVID babe on the planet, so riddle me that.
Someone once told me that I write like NPR sounds. If there’s even a modicum of truth in that statement, then that’s reason enough to keep writing.
