Jaime grew up in Syracuse, New York, before moving to Virginia Beach with her family. She earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from James Madison University, after which she moved to Northeast China to teach college English at a Teachers’ University. Upon her return to the U.S., Jaime attended a church with an affiliated Montessori school. There she learned about the Montessori method of education. This experience inspired Jaime to continue her educational journey, and in 2019 she earned her Montessori teaching credential from the Virginia Montessori Teacher Education Program. In her spare time, Jaime loves walking and playing with her English Lab, George.
