Jamie enjoys fishing, camping, attending church with her family, counseling, school, and writing.
It is Jamie’s passion to assist those struggling with mental health issues of any kind. She has overcome her own diagnosed bipolar I disorder with psychosis through hard work, favor, and strength from her God, along with the support from her loving family. Despite her mental illness, Jamie earned two master’s l degrees from Walden University and is currently under supervision to become a licensed professional counselor in the state of Louisiana.
Jamie wrote this book to empower those who are struggling with “invisible illnesses” such as bipolar, to know that there is life after a mental illness diagnosis. It can be the platform to propel yourself—through hard work, perseverance, and Godly courage—to become all God has designed you to be.
