In 2011 Dr. Jamie published her first book, “Restore the Flow” – a lifelong dream come true. In 2013 she began her training in Functional Medicine and in February of 2014 she earned her Ph.D. in Natural Health Sciences. Dr. Jamie’s research focused on stress physiology and specifically explored the effect of scripture-based mindfulness meditation on perceived stress levels and stress-related physical symptoms of working mothers.

Dr. Jamie is a genuine healer and lifelong scholar. Her ongoing academic and professional achievements and the positive health outcomes of thousands of her patients are a continual testament to her passionate dedication to natural medicine and the healing arts. She is sought-after for her grasp of both medical science and naturalistic approaches to treating disorders of health; her powerful hands-on healing bodywork; her warm and approachable nature; and her understanding of spiritual principles as a foundation for thought and belief, which ultimately affect physical health.
