Brook Kaufman, CDME
Chief Executive Officer
Brook grew up in Norfolk, NE and moved to Casper in 2015. During her time here she has fallen in love with the people of Casper and the sense of community. Brook is the CEO at Visit Casper and her favorite part about her position is continually forming strategic partnerships with fellow community members and working together to come up with creative solutions for impossible problems. When she’s not at work you can find her out for a run, reading at the beach, or planning her next adventure. Brook is also a big fan and attendee of many of the events that go on throughout downtown, and says her favorites are the 5150 Feast and 5150 Festival, which take place every year in August.
Business Development Manager
Luke is a Texas native and moved to Casper in the Fall of 2015. Luke's love of this city comes from the community's pride in their history and excitement about their future. As the Business Development Manager, his favorite part of his job is having the opportunity to sell everything that Casper has to offer and representing the community and its business owners at conferences and sales meetings around the nation. Luke's "go-to" tourist attraction is Hogadon Basin Ski Area, as it's not only an incredible space for outdoor adventure, but it also has one of the best views of Casper and is a great place to catch a sunset. Outside of the office, Luke can often be found snowshoeing or hiking Casper Mountain with his wife and dog.
Katie is a Casper native, and after leaving to go to college and spending a few years living out of state, she couldn’t help but find her way back to the city she never stopped calling home. Her favorite thing about her job is managing the events calendar as she sees it as a way to bring the community together and get everyone involved with what’s going on around town. Being someone who is extremely active, Katie has a passion for Casper Mountain and the North Platte River trails. She hopes to qualify for the Boston Marathon in the near future, so spending time running and hiking on both of these beautiful Casper attractions is one of her favorite ways to spend her time.
Destination Services Coordinator
Mikki is not a Casper native, but that hasn’t stopped her from making it her home. She was born in Belgrade, Serbia, raised in New York City, and never pictured herself falling in love with a city like Casper. However, the welcoming atmosphere and the kindness of the community hasn’t made loving Casper very hard. When Mikki isn’t at work, you can usually find her lounging around on her back porch or out exploring somewhere with her family and dogs.
Amanda has loved Casper for as long as she can remember. One of her favorite things about Casper is that it truly has the best things that most larger cities have to offer, but with Wyoming’s famous wide-open spaces included as well. As Visit Casper’s Marketing Manager, Amanda oversees all marketing and communications for the organization and strives to run an efficient and powerful marketing program for Visit Casper that moves the needle for Casper’s visitor economy. When she’s not at work, you can either find Amanda hiking Casper Mountain with her husband and dog, or at Grant Street Grocery sipping on a latte.
Content Marketing Coordinator
Wayne moved to Casper from Michigan in July of 2019 to join Visit Casper as the Content Marketing Coordinator. A quote that continually motivates Wayne is something that his Uncle always tells him: “You might not be the best at everything, but if you be your best at everything that you do, then one day you might be recognized as such.” This quote suits him well as he is a highly motivated individual with big goals including going back to school and earning his master’s degree in marketing and communications and completing an iron man and ultra-marathon.
