Director of Development and Marketing
“Growing up in a home which provided foster care for 13 babies (not all at once!) until placed for adoption, I learned the life changing effects a non-profit agency can offer people in need. Now, as a wife and mother of three, I strive to model a heart of service for my own family to follow.
My work as Director of Development and Marketing for Wyoming 211 gives me the chance to advance the cause of an agency which has servanthood as the touchstone of its existence. But an agency that provides assistance to people navigating various life challenges needs funding to continue and increase the services it offers. My volunteer work with various non-profit groups has given me the needed fundraising and development experience to further the mission of Wyoming 211.
Also, an agency with so much to offer must be widely visible. Our marketing program will seek to make sure that all Wyoming residents will know of the services Wyoming 211 provides. There is a lot on my plate for sure, and I am eager to get to work!”

Resource Database Supervisor
“I have always enjoyed the medical field and helping individuals. I moved to Wyoming in 2008 from New Hampshire. I am a mother to three amazing women, married to my husband Tim and he and I enjoy our 5 grandchildren. I enjoy camping, travelling to new destinations, history, reading and my pug Mattie!
My work means a lot to me. When I started working for Wyoming 211 the resources were limited. Having been a call specialist for many years taught me one thing, that we needed more. Now as a database curator, I have been granted the opportunity to gather more resources for anyone that calls into our call center looking for help. It’s gratifying knowing we can help someone when they call.”
