An Infinite Mind is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of survivors with trauma based dissociation with a primary focus on Dissociative Identity Disorder.
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 Assault, 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 events.
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.
