Jamie enjoys the sunshine. Whether it’s gardening, hiking, boating, grilling or simply lying in the grass with her hound dog, Duke, she loves soaking up the sun. When the days are a little shorter, she likes to camp and hunt with her husband, Paul. When she’s snowed in, she’s happily expanding her love for attempting new recipes at home. As much as she appreciates being outside, she also genuinely loves what she does here at Wind River Capital Management. When she’s not exploring the great outdoors, you can find her here in the office looking after clients’ accounts. Jamie holds her Series 7 and 66 and is registered to give investment advice and place orders. As a Senior Registered Associate, Jamie primarily focuses on helping clients with building and maintaining investment plans and administrative and operational needs such as opening new accounts, account transfers, account updates and maintenance.

Raised in Alaska, Melanie has always had an affinity for the great out-doors and close-knit communities, bringing her to Jackson Hole in 2014. Since then, she’s been enjoying all that the area has to offer such as hiking through the neighboring National Forests, floating the Snake River with friends, and participating in community events, like shopping at the People’s Market and running in the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. Melanie also reserves plenty of time to volunteer as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, and as a committee member and player for the local Roller Derby team, The Jackson Hole Juggernauts.

As a new Client Associate at Wind River Capital Management, Melanie is committed to helping serve Jackson’s locals to the best of her ability. Her main objectives are to become more familiar with clients by assisting them with deposits, money movements and account maintenance. She is looking forward to soon becoming a Registered Associate to continue to provide the best financial support for our clients.
