Biography for Sandy F. Ames, CHt

Sandy Ames is known by millions as Jamie Lee from 95.5 WPLJ Radio, and various TV shows. The name was given to Sandy by the legendary Scott Shannon, of the world famous ‘Scott and Todd in the Morning’ on 95.5 PLJ (he’s now on CBS). Scott thought ‘Jamie Lee’ sounded more “Hollywood” than ‘Sandy Ames.’ The name stuck. She is most noted for “Saturday Night 80’s with Jamie Lee” on WPLJ.

Over the years, Sandy has become a healthy lifestyle expert, and a multi-level internationally certified yoga and meditation educator, as featured on NBC's Today Show. Sandy recently spent seven years as TVLand’s Host of “The 100 Best Places You’ve Never Been.” Currently, you can hear Sandy (Jamie Lee) on America’s most listened to radio station, New York City’s WLTW Lite fm. She is also the voice of iHeart Media’s WOR Radio.

In addition to the New York City AIR Award for Best Evening Show on WPLJ, and 25 years’ experience as a Radio and TV Broadcaster, Sandy Ames is a world-renowned Voice-Over artist. You’ve heard her hypnotic voice on literally thousands of National TV and Radio commercials, Video Games, Instructional Videos, Cartoons, Promos, and Imaging. Think of the voices of Clairol Herbal Essences, Advil, Febreze, Kmart, Vh1, The Montel Williams Show, Starbucks, Saints Row Video Games... those are all Sandy Ames. Some of her latest campaigns include Pepsi, Johnson & Johnson, Fidelity, Yum Brands, and NY Life Insurance. She has created content for ABC, Clear Channel, CBS Digital, and other clients. She also co-founded Voice Actors of New York, a voice-over and broadcast training company.

Additionally, she is a KRI, and Yoga Alliance Certified teacher of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation, AcroYoga (a combination of Acrobatics, Yoga, and Thai Massage), Kids Yoga, Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, and Anatomy. With three years spent living in Los Angeles, Sandy co-launched a trendy LA Restaurant. She also received her diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the nationally accredited Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI) located in the Los Angeles area. Also, while in LA, Sandy produced a never-done-before Hypnosis and Yoga program.

As a Hypnotherapist with a healthy lifestyle and broadcast background, Sandy specializes in working with clients on public speaking, performance, career enhancement, confidence, relationship issues, sexuality and sexual performance, stress management, performance anxiety, pain management, healing and recovery, deep relaxation, fears, phobias, habit control, spirituality, clarity, weight loss, body and self image, memory and memorization techniques, success, pain relief, social anxieties, creativity, studying, test-taking, breakups, writing, LGBT issues, and motivation.

Still reading? Okay good. No one can know better than you how you are being drawn to certain healers and specific healing modalities. Usually it's a gut feeling. By clicking around on this site, certainly you are following gut feelings, even (and especially) without thinking about it.

Regarding experience, that is really all there is in life. Words don't teach. Only self experience does. I could tell you all about my experiences, but still, you could only learn from that which you resonate. Think about your own life experience. It is likely the richest part of you. Me too.
