While she had many career aspirations growing up, deep down, she always knew she would be a writer. But Jamie could have never imagined or planned the path God wanted her to travel in her life; she realized that Oprah’s saying is true: God really can dream a bigger dream for you than you can for yourself.
Georgia College & State University is where she discovered her passion and purpose: informing, assisting and empowering women through words. As an entrepreneur with many interests, she does this in a few ways — via her professional editing and proofreading company, Mocha Writer; through her blog, ForColoredGurls.com; and with her magazine and brand, flyy, female & fabulous.
Jamie’s mission is multifaceted: to motivate women to dream big, encourage them to define success for themselves and to inspire them to live the lives they truly desire and deserve. She will continue to walk in her purpose, showing women that they can and should go after whatever they want in life and helping them recognize they can do anything!
With a belief that all things are possible with God, Jamie lives by the words, “Feel the fear, and do it anyway.” She is happily married to Chris and resides in Anderson, South Carolina. She has been featured in several websites, blogs, magazines and Blog Talk Radio Shows, including TheCEOMamma.com, AfroElle Magazine and Prominence Magazine and was recently named one of the 2012 50 Fabulous Women Entrepreneurs on BBWO (Black Business Women Online). In her non-working life, Jamie is a nail polish addict, an avid magazine collector and a huge fan of chocolate.
