BRANSON, MO ─ Schultz and Summers Engineering, is pleased to announce the January employee of the month was Jaymie Potter from the Branson office. Owner Stan Schultz said, “It was not as hard to pick an employee of the month for January because Jaymie did such a good job on preparing so many SOQ’s that have helped us obtain new projects. In January she put together 17 SOQ’s which is almost one a day.”
Jaymie will be celebrating her second anniversary with SSE in October 2012. She helps manage the Branson office, but mainly focuses on preparing all SSE proposals and managing our database. Schultz added, “Jaymie has made a real difference in how nice our proposals and presentations look. They have helped us obtain some very key projects for the company and her database work has helped us do a much better job of keeping in touch with our customers and reaching new prospects.”

Jaymie lives in Branson, Missouri with her husband Jim and their four dogs Monty, Lucca, Dallas and Estee. Before joining SSE she owned a commercial fishing business in Kodiak, Alaska and still has a family owned B&B the Kodiak Russian River Lodge (www.kodiakrussianriverlodge.com). Marketing Director Rodney Jetton said, “Jaymie has been a huge blessing to SSE. Her desire to see our company succeed is contagious and she doesn’t know the word no. We keep pouring mountains of work on her and she just gets it done!”
Jaymie’s interests include, singing in the choir at her church, the Sanctuary of Hope, participating in the Republican Party, and sport fishing every chance she gets. She loves to visit her daughter and grandkids in Kodiak, Alaska and her newest interest is finding stories from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s that have moral lessons for children and recording them for her grandchildren. Jaymie says that stories like the Hedge of Thorns, Teddy’s Button, Jill’s Red Bag and Buried in the Snow, contain a Christian message to teach children, responsibility, kindness, and how to treat others. “These stories are wonderfully written but mostly in "King's English" so I take to story and tell it in my own words so they understand the message. My goal is to have a library that my grandkids can listen to so that the miles between us don't separate us as much,” she added.

When asked what she likes best about working at SSE she replied, “Everyday is a new challenge. I have my normal workload but the variety of projects really makes each day interesting. My weeks fly by, which is always a good assessment of the challenge and job satisfaction. The Branson team is fantastic. I am excited to see the success of the new direction the company is taking with the training and pursuit of new markets and clients.”
In honor of Jaymie being awarded January employee of the month SSE will donate $100 on her behalf to the Oxford House, which is a home in Springfield for women in recovery. “Jaymie has been such a big part of helping us present a more professional image to our customers and prospects. Having her skills on the SSE team has really helped us be successful,” concluded owner Bob Summers.
