Jaime grew up on a farm in rural Mecosta County where her parents and grandparents taught her the value of nature. Through the Chippewa Watershed Conservancy, she is passing these values on to her two children. Jaime serves on the Fundraising and Membership Committee and the Special Fundraising Committee. Her background is in non-profit, volunteer management and fundraising, most recently at Central Michigan University. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Master’s degree in Recreation Administration, both from Central Michigan University. Much of her free time is spent volunteering for Junior Achievement, Mt Pleasant Girls Fastpitch Softball, and the Isabella County Medical Reserve Corps.

Jaime has lived in Mt Pleasant for the past 20 years with her husband, Marc and children Tanner and Katelyn.
