Description

Haaaaaaave you met Jami? Meet Jami Elyse! Jami is a well seasoned hiker and Colorado native. She has a passion for nature and her dogs.

In this conversation we discuss Jami’s background as an emergency dispatcher. She reveals some tough calls and how a career as stressful as emergency telecommunications has impacted her and led her to the outdoors.

Jami also shares her experience with COVID-19 and it’s impact on her life both personally and professionally. She talks about how the virus started in her “2-inch torso” and took her out for nearly 8 weeks. She was told that her trail running regimen is what most likely saved her and gave her an advantage over the virus.

On top of overcoming COVID-19, Jami has a history of a variety of medical issues. She shared her recovery journey following a hip reconstruction surgery.

Did I mention Jami made friends with a porcupine and mountain lion in one day?! You’ll have to hear that story from Jami herself…in this episode.

In case you missed it:

Jami’s Dog mom hack is a leash splitter with a bungee cord and running belt.

The outdoor product she loves is the Patagonia Houdini jacket that fits into a small pouch. I found one here: www.patagonia.com/product/womens-h…dbreaker-jacket/
