Jamie grew up on the East Coast, USA, skiing since she could walk. By the time Jamie was 18 years old, she had won Junior World Championships in New Zealand and moved to Utah to become a professional slopestyle and halfpipe skier.
Jamie traveled the world competing at world class events like X-Games and Dew Tour. Jamie crashed through glass ceilings by becoming the first women to flip off a rail and double backflip in a competition.
In 2015, Jamie crashed in Whistler and went into a coma. She lived, recovered, went back to skiing and adventuring the world, bringing a unique, inspiring story with her. Jamie was the first patient in North America to receive an oxygen and pressure analyzing brain bolt procedure at Vancouver General Hospital, VGH continues to use the procedure on critical coma patients and their success rate has more then doubled. Her doctors learned about the “brain bolt” procedure one month prior to Jamie’s arrival at VGH.
