Board of Directors/Members


2015 RMSCA Board of Directors


  Jackie Herbst, President  

Jackie Herbst, a.k.a., “Lil Miss Mayhem”, is an Account Manager for Team K Services, Cleaning & Emergency Specialists.  Having been in the restoration industry for ten years, Jackie has earned numerous certifications, including those pertaining to Emergency Planning and Business Continuity.

Jackie spends many hours working in the trenches on all types of property disasters, giving her great insight and experience to assist property personnel with developing individualized & comprehensive disaster/emergency response plans.

Prior to entering the restoration industry, Jackie held positions in the public sector.  She served as an elected member of Lakewood City Council from 2001-2005 and concurrently served as an appointee of Governor Owens to the Colorado Juvenile Parole Board.  Jackie has also spent time working with non-profit organizations, having served as the Regional Development Director for Huntington’s Disease Society of America for two years.

Jackie has been heavily involved with the Rocky Mountain Shopping Center Association since 2006 and was elected as President in November of 2010.  Since that time, she has re-organized the association structure, developed a new mission statement and set of by-laws, along with organizing a new Board of Directors.

When Jackie is not knee-deep in flood waters or “mayhem”, she can be found fishing in the river, enjoying a day on the golf course or sometimes the occasional pheasant hunt.  Her absolute favorite past-time is spending time with her family.  She devotes as much time as possible to her children and her three adorable grand-children, but she can always be reached to attend to the most recent restoration emergency. 

If you haven’t met Jackie yet, just look for the “little red headed spit fire”, with a smile on her face at the next RMSCA event …that’s our Jackie Herbst.

Good news - most LED lighting is now dimmable but make sure it's compatible with your dimming system.   For example, lamps may flicker at lower output levels.  Dimmable LED lighting can be designed to dim to 1% or only 20%.  Lighting manufacturers may list compatible dimmers on their websites, but you should test before you buy.
