Career[edit]

Education[edit]

While working towards a degree in speech communication/organization at Texas A&M University, she took a weight training class for a kinesiology credit.[citation needed] It was then that her interest in fitness training began.

Cheerleader[edit]

In 2001, after graduating from college and while working for her grandfather's roofing company, she tried out for the new Houston Texans cheerleading squad. She was one of 35 girls selected from 1,600 girls in a rigorous two-day process.[1]

Direction change[edit]

After a short time as a Houston Texans cheerleader, she returned to a desk job where her inactive lifestyle and poor nutrition took a toll on her body. A cancer scare motivated her to change. In an attempt to get in shape, she joined a local gym. She continued to work out and improve but wasn't completely satisfied with her results. After consulting a nutritionist, she was put on a proper diet that completely transformed her body.[2] She married Michael Middleton, a fellow workout enthusiast and Worship Leader, on August 7, 2012. The couple are currently expecting their first child.

Modeling and Bodybuilding.com[edit]

Eason was first discovered at a fitness competition in Austin, Texas. She received a pro card after her first fitness competition in 2006 at the Hardbody Entertainment Model Search at the Olympia.[3]

As a spokesperson, Eason has been dubbed the "female face"[4] of Bodybuilding.com, the world's largest and most-visited online retailer for sports supplements and nutritional products.[5]

Eason became a member of the site on September 30, 2004, coinciding with the beginning of her fitness career in December of that year.[6] Her account, 'JamieEason', ranks as the second most "inspirational profile" on Bodybuilding.com, behind Aziz Shavershian's 'Zyzz'.[7]
