After decades of serial dating, and never meeting Mr. Right, Jamie Levine decided it was time to do things backwards: Become a mother first and a wife second. She became a SMC (Single Mother by Choice) at the age of 37, when she gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Jayda, in May 2007. Life as a SMC certainly has its challenges, but choosing to become a mom was the best decision Jamie’s ever made.
An accomplished children’s book/gift buyer and online marketer, Jamie is currently working as a freelance writer and consultant for children’s media and publishing companies. She is also a certified life coach, and prides herself in helping all types of women—and men—move forward and make positive changes in their lives.
