In Their Own Words:
Jamie creates an environment where it’s fun to learn alongside others. She invites you to share when you want so we can learn – not only from Jamie – but also from others experiences. It was also fun to go to the kitchen and make and try new foods together as a group! We’re all in this together, so having a comfortable atmosphere to learn, grow and share really helps!
I had never met Jamie prior to attending her “Change Your Diet, Change Your Life” workshop, but I instantly felt warmly welcomed and connected to her. Jamie is obviously knowledgeable and passionate about holistic wellness–taking into account your whole person, and getting to the root of issues so you can feel better. Food can be medicine, and Jamie has lots of ideas for how individuals can take steps in the direction of health by improving the food we put in our bodies.
I was so impressed with Jamie’s willingness to correspond with me outside the classroom setting–she really cares about me and my situation, and I am grateful for that. I think of a sports coach as someone who pushes their players to work harder and reach their potential, but gives them advice and support for reaching those goals. This is what Jamie did for us in the class, and what I know she would do in other settings as well.
If you’re not feeling your best, and you suspect that the food you’re eating might have something to do with it, I hope you will contact Jamie. She will walk alongside you to help you find answers to your questions–sometimes questions you didn’t even know you had!
“Jamie is relational and real! I appreciate how she weaves scripture into nutrition habits. When I was looking for change and information she was ready with the tools I needed!”

Since my holistic nutrition sessions with Jamie, I have a much more balanced approach to food. I’ve had digestive issues for many years (even though I tried to eat well) and was constantly searching for a way to feel better. From the beginning, Jamie was very personable, supportive, and without judgement, which I appreciated! She asked me to track what/when I ate, how it was prepared, and how I felt afterwards (this was really helpful). She had great ideas on foods to eliminate or introduce, and methods of preparation that might be easier on my digestive system – and they were! Together we set realistic goals for clean eating, exercise and managing stress. Jamie was really patient and encouraging as I strived to implement these new strategies, and shared real examples of how she had drastically changed her own eating habits to deal with many of the same issues I had. It was obvious to me that she put a lot of thought and expertise into our sessions, and continues to provide outside resources that are so informative and practical. Our meetings were interesting and fun, and with her guidance and encouragement I’ve been able to make lifestyle changes to improve my overall health. I’ve known Jamie for a long time, and she is a genuinely caring person with a heart for helping others get to a healthier place!
