Jami grew up in rural South Dakota. Currently, she is blessed to call the beautiful Black Hills home with her husband and 3 boys ages 15, 6 and 4. She has worked in different leadership roles in hospitality, gaming, marketing and customer service over the past 15 years. Jami enjoys a fun-loving work culture where familial bonds are created while still ensuring the tasks at hand are accomplished successfully. She is an authentic, passionate and goal driven person.
One of her favorite quotes is “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” – John Wooden. She maintains simple beliefs regarding team culture and interactions. Respect all. Treat people how you want to be treated. Show up and support one another while maintaining a positive mindset. Jami would consider her greatest accomplishments being able to see past and present team members grow into strong, thriving leaders in the industry and community after being able to help mentor and support them along the way. “A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.”
In what spare time she has in the summer, you will find her at Pactola and outdoors as much as possible. In the winter months she spends time with her family at the ice rinks. If you ask her what goes best with a cup of coffee, she will say another cup. 😊 She is a huge foodie- tacos and a margarita or a steak with red wine can cure most anything.
