As far as Jamie could remember her love of horses was as strong as the necessity to breathe. As a little girl she would spend hours drawing and perfecting every muscle in the horse without ever touching one. Finally, at the age of 10 her mom agreed to let her fly out to Colorado to spend the summer with her aunt and volunteer on a working horse ranch. Here, she learned all aspects of the horse, furthering her passion and extreme drive to be constantly surrounded by these beautiful souls. However, when Jamie turned 18, she was encouraged to use to her talents and go to an art school in NYC. She remained in NYC for 12 years in the advertising world as an Art Director for major advertising agencies. Horses were never far from her mind. As horse slaughter became a bigger issue in the US, she started to learn more about America's wild horses. Constantly learning, and finding ways to help, Jamie is now on the Board of Directors of The Cloud Foundation and found within them a passionate group of people, which inspired Jamie to use her skills to help promote the organization. Jamie and Mike (her husband) are now proud herd members of two mustangs Valor (TRNP wild horse), Flax (Pryor Mustang) and Matilda, her first Quarterhorse, two dogs Rizzo and Casper, and three cats Pepe, Payton, and Brooke, and two sheep, Pete & Puffin in NJ.
