Jamie Smith

There is no room for failure or time to waste on giving up; you will still be in the same place if you don't move forward and press on!

Jamie Smith may have lost the ability to walk, but she soars with crystal clear goals to obtain a bachelor’s degree in psychology and to work with others who may be struggling with a disability. In 2008, with a newly earned associate degree in Administrative Medical Assistance and her acceptance of a hospital unit secretary position, this single mother of a four-year old daughter was “living on cloud nine” before her life took a dramatic turn when her Jeep rolled over her and severed her spinal cord. With determination and resilience, coupled with compassion and tenderness, Jamie has made the choice to move forward – helping her daughter succeed and others to overcome obstacles in their lives.
