Jamie Wycoff, the new Department Assistant II for the Public Relation, Marketing, and Development Office at the Ridgecrest Campus, was born and raised in the small community of Elk Creek, California, population 163—yes you read that correctly, 163—home to one of the smallest public high schools in California, with a graduating class of 5 when Wycoff graduated. She received a full scholarship to play basketball at Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Washington, after graduation, but missed the sun, beautiful skies, and stars of California, so she returned to attend Butte College in Chico, where she completed her Associates Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences. She loves meeting and interacting with people and spent five years working for a hotel chain working her way up to Front Desk Manager and Director of Sales and Catering. She relocated to Ridgecrest in July with her fiancé, Zack, whose family owns a local rock quarry. Wycoff loves the small home town feel of Ridgecrest and enjoys walking her two furry dog children, Sadie Mae and Bubba, under the beautiful desert skies. She enjoys exercising and plans to stay in Ridgecrest for many years. Welcome Jamie, we’re delighted you’re here.
