About Me

Jamie Goekler has been an advocate for low-income communities for two decades. She earned her Master’s Degree in Teaching International Languages from California State University, Chico, and has traveled across continents to study, teach, and learn about the myriad of human experiences across cultures.

She has worked for academic institutions, government, and non-profit organizations. Goekler enjoys working as a human service advocate and change agent, developing programs that inform low-income communities about no-cost and low-cost services and support to empower them to thrive.

Her current role is Program Manager for Butte Community Action Resources & Equitable Solutions (CARES) at Community Action Agency of Butte County, Inc., which is a CalAIM initiative of the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of Medi-Cal Members through the provision of an Enhanced Care Management benefit and Community Supports services.

Jamie lives in the charming northern California community of Chico, where she and her partner may be found most frequently exploring rolling hills, coastal oases, hidden meadows, and other bucolic backyard destinations.
