Meet Jaime V.

Graduated 2016

“I applied to Guelph-Humber and it was my first choice the whole time because I love the fact that in a four-year span, when my friends are graduating with just their degree, I could get my degree and diploma in the same amount of time.”

Where is Jaime now?

Jaime is the first female Minor League Hitting Coach for the Toronto Blue Jays, so she is probably in Dunedin, Florida with the Toronto Blue Jays, if not travelling across North America for games!  We spoke to Jaime in March 2022 to find out a little more about her leap into history and her pathway there. Check out the video below.

@GH experience


Jaime connected her studies in stats and biomechanics at UofGH to her current role and work with baseball players. Although she found her statistics and biomechanics classes difficult, she explained she was lucky to have awesome professors.

“Biomechanics and stats were challenging courses, but professors made it easy to comprehend. Once you understand, it’s a very proud moment. I’m thankful for that; I use my biomechanics and stats nearly every day in this role.”

She now specializes in biomechanics and the spine and can put it into play with the Jays in their biomechanics hitting lab! Her UofGH stats and biomechanics professors helped her with her postgraduate application for her master's degree and acted as references, so maybe there's a bit of a tribute to them in her speciality.

Varsity sports

Jaime started coaching when she was 16 years old. At Guelph-Humber she leaped at the opportunity to join the Humber varsity softball team as a player for her second, third and fourth years of study. She also joined the Student Athletic Association in her first year and soon became President. These experiences built skills in time management, how to give and receive feedback, how to lead and other professional attributes.

After graduating, Jaime was hired on as an Assistant Coach for Humber.


Placement offered Jaime a chance to explore other potential directions for her career. She was a Clinical Rehab Assistant as well as a Chiropractor Assistant in two different placements. What she discovered was that the clinic lifestyle wasn't for her. (Little did she know where her career path would lead.)
