“I don’t know that I have a leadership style or that there’s a formula, but once everybody agrees, I usually shepherd people along,” Bohmer said.

She guides others and oversees progress, but she’s also a hardworking group member.

“I do roll up my sleeves and delve into everything that MHAIA is doing,” she said.

Before joining the association, Bohmer worked as trade communications manager for Del Monte Fresh Produce for almost five years.

Before that, she worked in public relations and advertising, and served as president of her own agency, Bohmer Clarke Communications.

As president of Bohmer Clarke, she worked with major corporate clients, including The Coca-Cola Co. and Quaker Oats Co.

Bohmer studied international business and economics at Incarnate Word College, San Antonio.

Bohmer’s years of experience in public relations and marketing with fresh produce and other products gave her a fresh perspective on MHAIA’s future, Campbell said.

Bohmer said her own mantra could help others interested in a marketing career: do good things, and good things will follow.

“Read everything, be meticulous, do the best you can, and good things will follow,” she said.
