Jamie's father died when she was a teenager, which sent her on a downward spiral. She got involved with the wrong crowd and eventually started dating a gang member. She quickly found herself involved in prostitution and drug addiction. After getting kicked out of the last place that would accept her, Jamie had a meltdown in a restaurant which was the best/worst thing to happen to her. While in jail, Jamie reached out for God and He showed up in a powerful way. Today Jamie works on the streets through Shekinah Ministries serving women who find themselves imprisoned in the very thing from which she was set free.
