Jaime's History with the Condition
Jaime has had a life-long journey with migraine, and she's lived most of her adult life with depression. As a toddler, Jaime was diagnosed with abdominal migraine, which progressed to chronic migraine as an adult. A wife and mother, Jaime learned to turn her pain into empowerment over the last 37 years.
Through her advocacy work and blog, Jaime's mission is to make an invisible disease visible to the rest of the world and validate the millions who live with pain. She works with several non-profit organizations to educate, empower and uplift migraine patients and their caregivers.
As a Migraine Patient Advocate Coordinator, Jaime's role is to help recruit patients into advocacy. The long-term plan is to change legislature and insurance policies for migraine patients and improve their access to care on the state level.
Creating migraine and mental health-specific content is one of Jaime's passions. It helps keep her connected to several health and migraine communities while offering support and validation for patients who feel like their condition is stigmatized and misunderstood.
