Jamie is IoTM's Administrative Assistant and she recieved her massage therapy diploma in March of 2008. Not only does Jamie assist in the day to day needs of IoTM's administration and instructors, she also performs the majority of the massages in our Professional Clinic.

While attending the Institute of Therapeutic Massage, Jamie became certified in Chair Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Reflexology, Infant Massage, Nerve Entrapment, Hot Stone Body Massage, Sinus Treatment Massage, but her real passion is Sports Massage. This passion brought her to the University of Northwestern Ohio, where she is currently working with the Athletic Trainers to gain experience.

Her love of massaging athletes also led to her to take required classes so that she can apply for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Some of the classes she has completed are CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillator). One more required class, First Aid, is needed and then Jamie will be able to submit her application to the Olympic organization. She has also been trained with Kinesiotape with The American Kinesiotaping Association and is working on getting certified.

Recently, Jamie was also selected as an Alternate Delegate to Ohio AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association). Her responsibilities include reviewing position statements made by the AMTA regarding policy and legislation. It involves research to be able to thoughtfully and critically review the position statements and getting feedback from other members. A well informed position statement allows AMTA to promote the massage profession, using scientifically based facts.

Jamie is asking for help to fund her travel expenses to and from the Olympic training and to Rio in 2016. You can donate by clicking HERE.

Jamie is a Thyroid Cancer survivor, so if her plans change and she is not able to use these funds or if there is more than she needs, she will donate the remainder to the Thyroid Cancer Survivors Association.

The Institute of Therapeutic Massage is proud of Jamie and all her accomplishments. We wish her much success during the Olympic interviewing process and wish her good luck in all her future endeavours. Great job Jamie!
