HAYLEE CHENCHAR

Assistant Director

Haylee Chenchar is the Assistant Director for the Downtown Development Authority.  She has been a “Cheyenne-ian” for the past 4 years and has loved every second of it.  Haylee obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing and entrepreneurial studies from the University of Wyoming.

As the Assistant Director, Haylee works to promote the businesses in the Downtown District, highlighting the hidden gemstones that the public may not know about.  Haylee’s favorite part of her job is fostering relationships with all of the downtown merchants, as each one of them is truly amazing and has a fantastic story to tell.

Prior to the DDA, Haylee was the Marketing Director at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.  She also worked in the Executive Division of the Wyoming Secretary of State and was a fitness instructor for Fitness307.  She loves chatting with the community about downtown’s many hidden gems and looks forward to the continued development of Downtown Cheyenne. In her free time, Haylee runs two Wyoming based start-up companies, serves beer at Cheyenne’s newest brewery, Black Tooth Brewing Company, and hikes with her husband and their dog as much as humanly possible.

AMBER TREVIZO

Events & Special Projects Coordinator

Amber Trevizo is the Events and Special Projects Coordinator for the Downtown Development Authority. Although a fairly new resident to Cheyenne, she is a Wyoming native having been born and raised in Sheridan and has spent the last 20 years just over the hill in Laramie. She graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.

As the Events and Special Projects Coordinator, Amber plans and coordinates the Downtown Development Authority’s yearly events calendar, identifies and tracks data as it relates to the downtown businesses and development, and assists in business outreach and promotion. Amber has extensive past work experience in project management, which is proving to be incredibly valuable as she has been able to pick up and coordinate several ongoing projects without missing a beat!

In her spare time, Amber enjoys camping, coffee, exploring the world with her husband, and spending time with family and friends. She believes in eating dessert first and that life is a beautiful adventure.
