Jorden grew up in Homer, working as a deckhand on the charter boats. She is a graduate of the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA where she studied International Political Economy. After giving her thesis presentation senior year, she was offered a communications marketing position with a strategic PR & communications marketing company in Seattle. Jorden has been helping people bring their business ideas to life with digital marketing ever since.

After moving back to Homer in 2019, Jorden has enjoyed helping local businesses build their online presence and grow their brand. When Jorden isn’t working, she’s adventuring with her husband and daughter here in Alaska and beyond. She loves to travel around the world and connect with different cultures while doing so.

Jessica Wray, COO

Jess is the Chief Operating Officer at Kachemak Communications. Jessica grew up in sunny Southern California and attended San Diego State University before spending much of her adult life traveling the world. She has had the opportunity to live in five foreign countries and travel to over forty others before ultimately settling down in beautiful Homer, Alaska.

Jess has worked in different facets of the travel industry for the last twelve years. Between creating her own successful travel blog, being a tour leader for Trek America, and becoming the Director of Marketing for an eco-friendly tour company, she knows the tourism industry inside and out. Deciding she wanted to use her marketing and tourism skills to benefit local companies on Kenai Peninsula, Jessica was thrilled to join Kachemak Communications.

When Jess isn’t working, you’ll either find her in the kitchen or on the trails. She loves both food and the great outdoors and spends much of her waking hours either thinking about her next big adventure, or just her next big meal.

Monique Burgin, Marketing Specialist

Monique is a Marketing Specialist at Kachemak Communications. She is originally from Indianapolis, IN but Alaska’s wild beauty, community, and active lifestyle pulled her to move and call Alaska home. With experience working at Kenai Fjords Tours, the Alaska SeaLife Center, and the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce, Monique developed an amazing understanding of Alaska’s wilderness, business development, and community outreach. Her strong passion for digital marketing led her to connect with Kachemak Communications to help build relationships and grow small businesses’ brands. Outside of Kachemak Communications, Monique adores yoga, thrifting, crafting, gardening, listening to live music, and hiking with her dog, coco, and friends.

Let’s build something together.
