Who We Are
An Infinite Mind Board of Directors
Jaime lives in Central Florida where she teaches
pre-school children with special needs and works
part time as an in-home early interventionist for
special needs children aged birth to three. Community
involvement has always been a passion for Jaime.
She started volunteering in a local elementary
school when she was in high school and then in
college became director of Best Buddies Colleges.
For several years after college, she worked as
a wish granter for the Make a Wish Foundation.
In 2000, Jaime switched gears and became involved
with organizations focusing on sexual trauma, a
cause that has become one of great importance to
her as she herself is a survivor of childhood abuse,
including sexual abuse. She helped organize and
participate in the first Operation
Freefall: The Two-Mile High Stand Against Sexual
a survivor skydive benefiting Speaking
Out About Rape, Inc. (SOAR) and has continued
to support and participate in the event ever
since. She has also assisted with various
fundraisers and events for SOAR and The Rape,
Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN).
Jaime found a new way to help survivors and spread
the word about sexual violence by becoming a speaker
for RAINN and TEAM
SOAR.Through these organizations, Jaime has had the honor of speaking
at several major universities as well as various conferences and community
Her advocacy work took a different turn when, in
2005, she was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity
Disorder (DID). Jaime searched for support only
to find there were very limited resources available.
Her efforts to find support for herself led her
to seek out other survivors living with the disorder.
As she found others living with DID, she witnessed
first hand the challenges they shared and decided
to shift her focus to help others, like herself,
living with DID. In July of 2007 she started one
of the only peer led DID support groups in the
country, which led to the creation of An Infinite
Mind in January of 2008.
Jaime proudly served on the board of directors for Women Speak Out and acts as an advisory member for Pandora's Project; which provides support and resources for survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Her passion comes from the hope that people with DID can find the support and resources they need and will no longer fear the stigma surrounding the disorder.
