Programs and Logistics Corrdinator
Jaimee was the Military Intern for Higher Ground Sun Valley veteran’s camps, and had a life changing experience. Working with the veterans and their dependents was such an incredible, eye-opening opportunity that she has refocused her studies to further prepare her for a career in recreation programming for military personnel. She is currently working on her thesis coursework to earn a MA from CA State University, Chico in Recreation Management.
Her thesis is focusing on the motivations and/or inhibitors for post-combat veterans to participate in recreation/TR programs. She received her BA from SFSU in Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration, and has spent most of the last 3 years working for the largest regional park district in the nation.
Jaimee served in the Air Force as a Radar Intelligence Analyst, and has always had a heart for the military community. In her free time, she prefers to be doing anything outdoors: hiking, bike riding, walking her dog, snowboarding and kayaking.
