In 1996, Jamie Herndon-Jensen retired from her twelve-year career in Power Tumbling and Trampoline. During her career, she competed in three World Championships, and advanced to the highest Elite level of Power Tumbling. Little did she know that her training as an Elite gymnast would continue to benefit her health and discipline in the years that would follow. Although the training during her teenage years was noticeably more difficult than her childhood training, Jamie continued to work hard and added resistance exercise to build muscle and support her performance. “My mother cooked all our meals at home, so I really had a balanced diet growing up without the negative impact of fast food.” The intense, regular exercise continued to support Jamie through her twenties, when she realized how important it is for girls to be physically active from a young age. She would coach gymnastics for 2 years before entering college.
While in college, Jamie worked as a sales representative in the circuit board design industry. It was during this time that she learned the value of good communication and exceptional customer service. She has stated, “I believe the key to growing any business is strong client support”. With this attitude and determination, Jamie brought in $12,000,000.00 in revenue for her company in one year, allowing the business to witness considerable growth while maintaining quality service and quality relationships with existing clients. Her experience in this industry taught her the importance of over-delivering products and service, and the value of the resulting referrals.
Although Jamie excelled at her job, her desire to help others manifested itself in her dream to eventually become a family counselor. After receiving a collection of CD’s on biochemistry from a mentor at her church, Jamie realized the depth of influence that diet has on the human body: physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. She decided that in her counseling years to come, she would put a strong focus on nutritional health, as a proven way to improve the wellbeing of parents and children. She also realized that the permanence of proper health choices requires a strong desire to leave the path of self-destruction and illness. Witnessing time and time again that a popular ingredient in the recipe of family struggles was health complications, she began to study the misbalance of the typical American diet, and the negative impact of the numerous artificial and toxic chemicals and preservatives.
Jamie transferred to Dallas Baptist University to complete her degree in business management, with a goal to obtain her master’s in counseling thereafter. In 2007, Jamie met Thomas and they quickly realized how closely their dreams fit together. It was truly “a match made in heaven”, and they were married in November of 2009. In 2010, Jamie joined Elect Wellness full-time as Business Development Director. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Dallas Baptist University with her Bachelors in Business Studies in 2010. Jamie oversees the marketing, sales efforts, and manages the day-to-day operations of Elect Wellness, in addition to providing counseling, natural recipes, and health tips for clients.
