Meet Jamie! She’s comes to FPC with the experience of a mom of 2 and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to pre/postnatal training. Read on to get to know her a little better.
Hometown? Farmington, NY (In the beautiful Finger Lakes!)
Current location? Manhattan
What is your background? I started in Hospitality and Tourism managing VIPs in 5-star hotels. I was essentially the fixer for everyone’s challenges or needs surrounding their experience – which is basically what I do as a mom now so it all correlates! But after having Postpartum Depression and a variety of body injuries after having my first son, I became passionate and driven to help women avoid those things and have an outlet for rehabilitation and strength postpartum.
What do you do when you don’t teach at FPC? Chase tiny humans, enjoy lots of new restaurants with my family, and train lots of awesome, strong women.
What inspires you? Seeing women I have the pleasure of working with step into their strength and realize what they’re capable of. And showing my boys that they have a strong mom.
Describe the energy of your FPC class. Upbeat, form-focused, and fun!
What do you want to be when you grow up? Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to be a crime scene investigator, but it’s probably more realistic now – I’m a little more adjusted to bodily fluids that aren’t my own…
Current favorite song? Don’t Call Me Up, by Mabel. I’m actually an old soul musically so I only listen to current songs for class, but this one always makes me want to move.
If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be and why? A Giraffe. Because being tall, lean, and graceful, while having nothing to do but graze in the sunshine all day sounds like an amazing thing if you ask me.
Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you. When I was 8, I walked by an audition to be in American Girl Fashion shows at our local mall and got selected. I modeled Addy and had a blast. You can only do it for as long as you fit their sample size, so outgrowing them quickly was a bummer. Now I have lots of cool accessories and two boys that could care less about anything American Girl (of course!)
