Prior to leading Brown & Sterling Employment Law, Jaime worked for Target Corporation in Human Resources for both the stores and distribution after college. While working for Target Corp., she implemented HR policies and procedures for the stores, helped create a centralized recruiting program for the distribution centers, and worked extensively on employee relations issues.

Upon graduation from law school in 2004, Jaime began her career with the Atlanta office of Ogletree Deakins (an international employment law defense firm), after clerking with the Indianapolis office during law school. In Atlanta, Jaime focused on many aspects of employment law including, but not limited to, employment litigation. In 2010 and 2011, Jaime served as in-house counsel for Regis Corporation in Minneapolis where she advised internal clients on handling employment disputes as well as implemented an internal wage and hour compliance program. Jaime returned to Ogletree in 2011 at its Minneapolis office and last moved to Seattle. Prior to joining Brown & Sterling, Jaime worked for Ogletree in Seattle honing her skills related to Washington State’s employment laws.
