Guest Bio:

Jaime has a diverse spatial and policy skillset having worked across architecture, urban design and strategic planning in government and private organizations. Jaime has designed and delivered sustainable solutions in bespoke residential architecture, prepared complex structure plans to guide inner-city renewal in some of Sydney’s most recognized centers, and prepared strategic plans and policies for the Local Government and the Planning Institute of Australia. Having qualified as a yoga and meditation teacher in 2015, Jaime also regularly curates workshops, courses and public classes to offer the community regenerative wellbeing practices grounded in traditional Yoga and Ayurveda, and emerging behavioral- and neuro-science.

Jaime’s work supports her belief that all development professionals must own their duty as custodians of the built and natural environment to create environmentally sustainable, equitable, and engaging places for all. She knows that this kind of leadership takes a resilient mindset and rhythmic wellbeing that is deeply attuned to place and practiced in the community. Jaime founded Place Philosophy in 2021 to bridge the gap between leadership education, wellbeing, and regenerative practices.
