As the Marketing Director for the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce, Jaime ensures smooth transitions for all communication between our members and staff. Anyone who walks through the doors will find polite and excited conversation from Jaime, always with the possibility of gaining a new friend! She believes in bringing a positive attitude into every situation and cares deeply for all those around her.

As a small-town girl at heart, Jaime finds the community of Kearney exciting because there are big opportunities but still a local, tight-knit community. Relationship building is one of Jaime's favorite parts of her job as she is a people-person. Being talkative was seen as a problem in school but really comes in handy when meeting with members and planning events!

Jaime started off at the Chamber as a summer intern but transitioned into a part-time member of our team as she attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Following her graduation from UNK in May 2021, Jaime lived and worked in Alaska around the Wasilla area. She enjoyed the challenge of being in a new city and loved adventuring on hikes, fishing trips, and making new connections. The gorgeous Alaska scenery and wonderful people are near and dear to Jaime, but her heart remained in Kearney.

After moving back to Nebraska in August 2021, Jaime was promoted to Marketing Director. She looks forward to spending her time developing new marketing and promotional opportunities for members! Some of her favorite parts of working as the Marketing Director are planning membership events and being the Chamber liason for the Young Professionals Network.

Outside of work, Jaime enjoys being outside-- hiking, fishing, and boating. She spends a lot of her time following local sports team, especially if her significant other is coaching the team! Jaime prides herself on the number of concerts she can attend each summer. If you can't find her anywhere, she is probably having fun while bartending at McCue's Nebraska Taproom!
