She texted breaking updates to an editor while teenagers ducked under church pews after hearing gunfire, interviewed a state legislator as he reached into heifers for pregnancy tests, and revealed that executive members of the Houston mayor’s staff used city funds to pay the bills of a nonprofit that later filed for bankruptcy.

Rep. Krayton Kerns, R-Laurel, (center) drove home from the Montana capitol one weekend in the 2011 legislative session to help a friend pregnancy test his cattle the old-fashioned, cheap way: by reaching into the rectum and feeling below for the uterus. Here, they brand a heifer whose mark had faded.

In December 2017, Jayme was selected for the inaugural ProPublica Local Reporting Network and will spend 2018 working on an investigative project for the Malheur Enterprise in eastern Oregon. The first story tracked Charles Longjaw’s trail of crime over three decades, including while under state supervision, and examined KESS InHouse RD1153ADM02 Robin Dickinson Wonderful Pink Green Dog Place Mat, 24 x 15 despite warnings he was dangerous.

Before that, she was a state government, special projects and education reporter for Lee Newspapers of Montana.

In the fall of 2017, she co-taught an investigations class at the University of Montana School of Journalism with Professor Joe Eaton. It was a first-time collaboration with a professional partner, the Missoulian. They mentored undergraduate and graduate students as they analyzed why Montana has one of the highest rates of drug-exposed births and how the state failed by several measures to help pregnant women who used drugs.

In 2015, she was named an KESS InHouse RD1174ADM02 Robin Dickinson Forever Young bluee Coastal Dog Place Mat, 24 x 15 as part of a Houston Chronicle team that investigated the jail suicide of Sandra Bland after a questionable traffic stop. The reporting forced state regulators to change how jails screen inmates, leading to a drastic reduction in deaths. Other projects as a writer and videographer won Jayme top recognition in the Society of Professional Journalists Region 10 Mark of Excellence Awards for three consecutive years. KESS InHouse RD1196ADM02 Robin Dickinson Sweet Dream Black Purple Galaxy Dog Place Mat, 24 x 15 that was named a national runner-up examined the questionable science and poor defense in a local “shaken baby” conviction. Her reporting caught the attention of the Montana Innocence Project, which successfully petitioned for exoneration. Wilkes was freed in the summer of 2018, although prosecutors say they might seek a new trial.

She also reported for the school’s Native News project as a writer and a photographer, exploring policies that affect the availability of plants for traditional uses and how the cost of transportation affects economic opportunities in one of America’s most remote communities.

In 2014, the Portland Timbers shot free “axe portraits” of fans that they also used in an advertising campaign. When the Timbers played the Houston Dynamo, I shot our own axe portraits.

When she’s not tapping a keyboard or brandishing a recorder, Jayme roots for the Portland Timbers with the Kess InHouse Roberlan Peacolor Rainbow Peacock Dog Bed, 30 by 40Inch,  a regional supporters group that directs its passion for the beautiful game into a reason to do good in the community. She also loves playing cribbage with her husband, cuddling with her dorky green cheek conures, watching movies, Kess InHouse Robin Dickinson Pterodactyls bluee Tan Pet Dog Blanket, 60 by 50Inch, and baking pies.
