“The arrival of the pandemic and the well-documented current and future of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers have placed tremendous strain on the US healthcare system and exacerbated existing problems in the delivery of health care. I am pleased to serve on the advisory board which will help CodeBaby, Inc., develop avatar-based technology and interactivity that will lead to the development of a new generation of physician extenders.”
Dr. Jamie Thomson has been committed to facilitating communication & connection while examining what makes people tick for the past 30 years. With a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Art from Ohio Northern University, she received her doctorate in clinical psychology in 2002 from Wright State University and practiced clinical psychology for seven years.
In 2012, when she ventured into design, she discovered her goals of communication and connection did not change – her tools did. With brand design and strategy, her experience and knowledge of human emotions and behavior enriched her offerings, deepening every service she delivers. Jamie views brand strategy as building connections and rapport between brands and their customers and facilitating that relationship to foster awareness and ongoing loyalty.
She helps brands identify strategies and pinpoint areas that may block access – allowing for honest connection and authentic messages. She designs for clear visual communication and creative brand messaging. Operating as an independent designer and consultant since 2012, Jamie thrives while working with health and wellness companies, human-computer interaction, female professionals, and artist branding. In her free time and when particularly stuck on a creative puzzle, she can be found in her studio painting.
“Even as we experience vast technological advances in communicating and delivering services, some of the same old human connection barriers continue to exist. I am excited by the possibilities CodeBaby presents in addressing and breaking down these barriers and enhancing human-machine interactions.”
