Christianne Belles, owner of Home Ec in Downtown Chico, is a positive individual whose life philosophy surrounds around being happy and making others around her happy. Her positive attitude is most evident and definitely contagious. She brings this same attitude to her shop, Home Ec. As a Downtown Business owner, Christianne’s greatest joy comes from seeing customers humor themselves with the products Home Ec has to offer.

Jamie Camaren, General Manager of the Hotel Diamond and Johnnie’s Restaurant and Lounge, has led an interesting career to where she is now. During her childhood, her mother owned and operated Swensons, a restaurant in Willows. At age 12, she had already begun waiting tables and since then she has always found herself in the restaurant business. Contrary to her experience in restaurants through high school graduation, Jamie decided to attend Chico State University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Education—she wanted to teach. After graduating, Jamie left Chico to work for a catering company in Hawaii. Her time spent in The Aloha State eventually brought her to Las Vegas, where she continued working in the restaurant and catering business.
