a little bit about me

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world.  My name is Jamie Gathing.

I’m a ray of sunshine, a ball of energy, and a lover of people.  I’ve never met a stranger and will engage just about anyone in friendly conversation.

For the longest, I believed I was an extrovert at the highest level.  I now know that my extrovert levels equally balance out my homebody traits and tendencies.

I can be at home all day without the tv or radio playing and be just fine.  So to all my introverted friends, don’t worry, when I am at home I am meek, quiet, and reserved.

If “all of the things” was a person, I’m your girl.

If I am not home relaxing, reading a book, or catching up with friends and family, you can find me indulging in some of my favorite outdoor hobbies. I enjoy rollerskating, hiking, and kayaking.  Being outdoors for me brings about a sense of peace like none other.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention food here because, for one, I love to eat.  Fun fact, I enjoy soups year-round and have never met a breadstick I didn’t like.

Mentorship is pivotal to long-lasting success.  Reaching the proverbial top is accomplished by surrounding yourself with the right people and intentionally doing life with them.  Need someone to tag along? Consider letting me walk alongside you on your journey to success.

Everyone has a story to tell and I enjoy sharing my ups and downs, wins and losses, and the ins and outs I’ve learned along my journey.  Experience is a good teacher, but unshared experiences hinder the growth of others. Consider having me as a speaker at one of your events.
