Our Team

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.

Luke Gilliam

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.

Amanda Scherlin

Marketing Manager

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.

Chelsea Combe

Marketing Specialist

As a proud native, Chelsea has always found beauty and opportunity within the town of Casper. From attending the University of Wyoming (Powder River, Let ‘er Buck!) to pursuing a professional career in Denver for five years, she has gained a diverse collection of experiences in many places. However, it didn’t take long for her to be beckoned back home. As the Marketing Specialist at Visit Casper, Chelsea is looking forward to utilizing her fresh perspective on her hometown to craft authentic, beautifully curated marketing content to elevate our visitor’s experiences while simultaneously advocating for locals and sharing their stories. Out of the office, you can find Chelsea reveling in the downtown boutiques, strolling the Casper Art Walk or catching a mountain bike ride with her girlfriends on Casper Mountain.

Amanda Sewell

Destinations Experience Coordinator

Amanda has always found this place to be mighty. As a local with strong roots in Casper, she has loved watching the community bloom into a bustling city full of character and opportunity without ever losing that small town, Wyoming feel. Although there are so many things to be proud of, Amanda's favorite thing to revel in is Casper's kindness and welcoming nature. She believes that Casper, and the people that call it home, have a way of leaving a lasting impression. As the Destination Experience Coordinator at Visit Casper, she is eager to breathe new life into not only the local community, but into the industry as a whole. In our office you can find Amanda sharing her best kept mountain hideaways and setting beauty trends.

Terri Weinhandl

Executive Assistant

Meet Terri, our fearless Executive Assistant on the Visit Casper team. As a transplant from Northern Minnesota, Terri's "Minnesota nice", love for rural areas and passion for community all assisted her well when her and her husband moved to the Oil City to start a life and a family together. Fast forward thirty years, two daughters and two spunky grandkids, and she can't imagine calling any other place home. In her new role she is looking forward to staying in the know on all things Casper and shedding a positive light on not only our office, but the community as a whole. When Terri is not keeping the Visit Casper team at our best, you can find her walking alongside the North Platte River on a beautiful afternoon and chasing her busy grandkids around town.
