Jamie lives in Atlanta with her husband, Ross, Great Dane, Coley, and daughter, Desi. She completed her undergraduate degree in human development and family studies with a focus in child life and preschool development at Auburn University, and received a master's degree in early childhood education (specifically Montessori education) at Belmont University. She enjoys spending time in the mountains of North Carolina, appreciates the art of handwritten letters, and is currently working to implement the “Konmari method of tidying” at home. When not at home, Jamie can be found taking an exercise class at Pure Barre, tailgating and cheering on the Auburn University football team, or spending time with local moms of children with cystic fibrosis sharing ideas.
