meet the breathe team.
co-founder + chief breather
Jamie Cole has spent her career engaging with businesses and people in an effort to help them thrive. Focusing on purpose and positive, effective engagement are Jamie's sweet spots.
Jamie brings 20+ years of experience across diverse organizations including retail grocery, wellness, pharmaceuticals, CPG, sports marketing and residential summer camps.
Most recently, Jamie purchased Skin Deep (providing beauty skin deep and beyond) medical spa in Strongsville, Ohio, where she is focussed on helping people feel their best selves.
Jamie owned and ran Camp Robin Hood for 11 years in partnership with her husband David, and his camp buddy Richard Woodstein ("Woody"). Jamie rebranded the camp, integrated a backend software solution, led operations and all communications, and together with her partners, more than doubled the camper attendance in her tenure from 198 campers to over 440 campers.
Jamie's greatest legacy at camp was creating breathe - a women's health retreat - to bring dynamic women together to enjoy a beautiful setting, with delicious food, fun activities and meaningful conversation. Jamie believes women's connections with each other offers critical nourishment for the soul.
co-founder + chief activity coach
As a lifelong endurance athlete with the dual goal of training and racing until her bones turn to dust, Lynne relishes sharing that passion with everyone she meets. Lynne has spent over three decades learning about training, recovery, and nutrition.
This zeal and dedication manifested itself in almost every professional endeavor from the Women’s Sports Foundation, ABC Sports and ESPN and Oxygen Media. More recently, Lynne shared her passion for triathlons as a coach and co-founder of Team Training New England, a regional triathlon training program for beginners. Later, Lynne became the co-founder of Imagine Float, a boutique floatation and wellness center offering float therapy, cryotherapy, infrared sauna, compression therapy and other recovery and wellness modalities.
Through it all, Lynne has used her unique skills of organization and the ability to see the big picture to help bring a project or passion to completion. With breathe, Lynne has enjoyed the opportunity to bring a group of women together over a long-weekend to eat, ride, hike and play. The connections made have transcended over the years which is the greatest validation of this special retreat.
