The most important stuff should always come first… Jamie is originally from Chicago, has a Halloween birthday, is a former college jock, enjoys hiking, mountain biking and golf, volunteers for Community Food Share, the American Cancer Society and Little League Baseball, and is a Chicago Cubs and Bears fan!
Jamie also founded 110 Percent LLC in 2010 as a way to make an impact. Located in the recreation mecca of Boulder, Colorado, 110 Percent’s promise is quite simply, to challenge conventional thinking, to leave an indelible mark, and to change things for the better.
In Jamie’s glory days, she played college softball and later coached at the University of Illinois. After her stint in college athletics, she worked for notable public agencies including the Champaign Park District (IL), the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department (IN), and the Boulder Parks and Recreation Department (CO).

Her current work as a consultant, coach and trainer focuses on enhancing adaptive leadership capabilities and organizational effectiveness. Her inherent ability to mobilize people towards a common purpose allows her to direct dynamic processes leading to impressive results.
