Meet Your 2021 Chamber Board Candidates!
I am a Police Officer/Emergency Management Director with the City of Paynesville. I am better known as K9 Jerry's personal driver. I have worked for the city since January of 2017. I am also an emergency medical technician for CentraCare Health-Monticello. I serve on the Paynesville Airport Commision and am on the committee that is working to bring the airshow back to town. On my days off I like to travel and go camping.
My name is Kayla Loesch and I am employed by MAG Wealth Management as a Client Service Associate. I love working with people and helping them to achieve their goals. I am looking forward to being part of the Paynesville Chamber and continuing to bring support to our local businesses.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, golfing, and being in the great outdoors.
My name is Maia Rue. My husband, Kelly Rue and I have lived in Paynesville since 2002. We will be married for 28-years in 2021. We have two children, Shelby and Shawn, both graduates of Paynesville High School. I graduated from KMS Highschool in 1991. I attended Winona Technical College/Winona State University and obtained my A.A.S Degree/Legal Secretary Diploma in 1993. Immediately following college, I worked for Fingerhut Companies from 1993-2002 as a Compliance Risk Analyst. I joined the Law Firm of Gray Plant Mooty in 2002 and worked as a Legal Secretary and Paralegal until 2007. I enrolled in St. Cloud State University in 2007 to finish my Bachelor’s Degree and left Gray Plant Mooty to join the Law Firm of Leonard Street and Deinard. I graduated from St. Cloud State with my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Studies in 2012. Yes! It took 5 years to finish the last 2 years of my degree. I was a working mom with a career and a husband running his own business. Upon graduation I made an additional career move and rejoined Fingerhut Companies parent company Bluestem Brands. I also joined Bugbee Hive Resort as their Wedding and Events Manager in 2014 as a side hustle/fun job. I am an active member of Toastmasters.
