Executive Artistic Director

Education Director

 
 

Jaime Love, a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, left the big city and worked in summer theatre in Montana (Damn Yankees), did post production film work in L.A., and then fell in love with voice over work and headed east again to attend Connecticut School of Broadcasting. She then went on to Boston, where she worked as the Arts & Entertainment Director and Promotions Director at WMJX and WMEX, focused on producing (Today's Executive Women & That's Entertainment) voice overs, and met husband Rick Love! 

Radio brought Jaime and Rick back to the West, this time to San Francisco (anyone remember Viacom's STAR FM?) and ultimately to Sonoma where he owns Creative Audience Research. She is proud to be creating opportunities for the Arts in this beautiful and talented town, has enjoyed making music with her singing troupes Wine, Women and Song, Defying Gravity (J Love Productions) and performing in Little Shop of Horrors (Audrey), Our Town (Mrs. Webb), and Beauty Queen of Leenane (Maureen), to name a few. She is happy to be staying in one place for once with her husband and their two kids, Jackson and Veronica, and thrilled to call Sonoma her home for the past twenty years!
