Jamie grew up in Miami, FL and moved to NYC to be an actress in 2007 after graduating from the University of Texas at Austin. In 2008, she was auditioning for everything under the sun and eventually started her children’s entertainment company, Jam with Jamie. A couple years after starting this company, she booked an Off-Broadway children’s show called “Wanda’s Monster,” with music by Laurie Berkner. It was at this time that she began training other performers to join the team. She now has over 50 performers that work in multiple cities across the country, and Jam with Jamie has become a one-stop-shop for all of your children’s entertainment needs: Musicians, Face Painters, Balloonists, and more. Through the pandemic Jamie has continued to evolve with the times, moving from in person to virtual and social distanced events, as well as launching a new Homeschool program. Her company has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Fox, and NY1, to name a few.
In addition to her entrepreneurial endeavors, she is a writer, and her work has been featured in Babe by Hatch, Modern Loss and Mama Glow. She has also written two comedic pilots made for TV, one of which made its way around the web series circuit, garnering multiple awards and press. Jamie has had pitch meetings with HBO, Comedy Central, CBS Interactive, and Comedy Crib.
In addition, Jamie is the co-founder of The Alan Epstein “Reach for the Stars” Scholarship Foundation in honor of her brother, Alan, who passed away in a car accident in 1998. This charity also honors her parents who have passed from cancer since its inception. They have awarded over 200 scholarships to students in South Florida over the past 20 years.
Jamie lives in South Florida with her husband Shaun and her most important role to date is being a mama to two beautiful boys: Zach, four years old, Evan, two years old, and newborn daughter, Zoey.
