Jamie Coutts, Advisory Board Member
My name is Jamie Coutts. I’m a wife and mom to 3 kids. I am a spontaneous carrier to Hemophilia A. Through testing in 2016, we found out that myself, Connor and Cora have Hemophilia. We have learned so much and we have advocated in Carson City and Washington days! We love to share our story and will continue to do so for as long as it takes. I joined the board in late 2021, and I hope to be able to learn and spread more awareness of this rare disorder. I’m a busy mom these days, so I don’t have a lot of free time, but when I do, I just love hanging to out with friends and family. My favorite color is purple and my favorite animal is an Orca (Killer) whale. I would LOVE to go whale watching someday!
