Jaime is an entrepreneur at heart. She started her first business 2002 as a Marketing / Public Relations Consultant. Some of clients included Southwest Texas State University College of Business, Central Texas Medical Center, Austin Center of Aesthetic Dentistry, and the City of Dripping Springs. She and her husband, Bobby, moved to Fort Collins in 2006 when they purchased Aspen Grove Veterinary Care. Jaime served as President of Aspen Grove for 14 years. During her tenure, Aspen Grove received the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award, the Premier Hospital Award from Merial/Boehringer Ingelheim, and was featured on CBS News Denver for being the first animal hospital in Fort Collins to offer Class IV Laser Therapy to pet owners. After selling Aspen Grove in May of 2020, Jaime decided she couldn’t stay away from small business and recently purchased Change Everything Furniture & Home Décor.
Jaime and Bobby have one daughter, Ally, who attends Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. When she is not working Jaime enjoys skiing, traveling, live music, spending time outside, and time with family and friends.
“While the product or service of a business can change, the principles of business, leadership, marketing, and finances remain the same – that’s where I excel. I hope that working as a LOCO Facilitator and sharing my experiences, mistakes, and achievements will help other small business owners solve everyday problems and achieve their overall goals.”
My Facilitator Strengths
Marketing – I view marketing a business like a cake. It can be beautifully decorated with the exact frosting that you love – but if you bite into it and it tastes terrible, you’re not taking another bite. Your business is exactly the same. You can have the most beautiful and clever marketing campaigns but if people come in and have a bad experience with you, they won’t come back. I love helping business owners with both aspects.
Systems & Processes – Consistency is key! Consistency creates stability and the ability to train and onboard team members quickly.
Leadership & Culture – Culture is what you promote, say, do, and allow inside your organization. There’s really nothing that culture doesn’t affect in your business. Have you curated the business culture you want or did you just allow a culture to happen?
About the Thinkers Chapter
These chapters are designed for the owners of stage II companies, generally between 5 and 25 employees and between $500,000 and $5,000,000 in gross revenues.
LoCo Think Tank brings together non-competitive business owners from different industries, to identify and explore solutions to business challenges. Each chapter is professionally facilitated by a successful business veteran.
Our facilitators are driven by the purpose and impact of the role and focused on maximizing the experience of members. The facilitator manages communications leading up to and following each meeting, maintains order during the meetings, and meets one-on-one, or in small groups, with members in between chapter meetings.
