An avid animal lover all her life, Jamie discovered the power of the human/animal bond and its ability to transform lives, after a devastating flash flood destroyed her home and took the lives of her beloved pets. Animals helped her recover from this traumatic event and she dedicated her life to giving back to them. She studied a number of healing modalities for animals, but after opening her business, Animal Bonds, in 2010, she soon realized that in order to help animals, she had to help the people who love them.
In 2016 Jamie discovered Let Animals Lead®Animal Reiki, an elite method created by Kathleen Prasad that teaches people how to support animals and heal themselves through animal reiki/meditation, and she fell in love with meditation. Jamie became a certified Meditation and Mindfulness teacher through the School of Positive Transformation, and she has studied mindset for animal sports teams. She brings a modern and unique style to people’s relationship with all animals, especially pet lovers, and animal sporting teams.
Jamie obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcasting/Journalism and spent the next three decades working in television, law enforcement, and fire prevention. Her passion for animals led her to open Animal Bonds. She has taught animal reiki meditation at Lied Animal Foundation, Lost Our Home Animal Rescue, Windy's Ranch and Rescue, and presented to several animal welfare groups. In addition to her work with animals, Jamie is an author, published in Chicken Soup for the Soul, My Dog's Life, Cesar's Way, and Las Vegas Pet Scene magazine. In 2018, she graduated from the Las Vegas National Speakers Academy and was the grand prize winner of the Las Vegas Ultimate Speakers Competition.
Jamie is active in local animal rescue and provides pro-bono services to animal rescue groups, shelters, and sanctuaries. She currently serves on the board of Windy’s Ranch and Rescue Animal Sanctuary, a potbellied pig rescue, and loves teaching people how to see farm animals as friends and companions. Jamie is a member of the international non-profit organization, Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA). SARA is the only professional organization dedicated to sharing the Let Animals Lead® method with shelter staff, volunteers, and animals. Jamie served as an outreach coordinator for Hearts Alive Village Animal Rescue.
