Julie Hoffman, LCSW I have been a social worker since 2012 and I have been a member of the NASW since before I graduated with my Bachelor of Social Work degree. The organization has been instrumental in my professional development here in Wyoming.
I have taken advantage of the professional connections that I have made through the ethics training and the annual convention. I grew up in Cody then moved to Minnesota where my husband and I raised our family. We have two children and three grandchildren. I went back to school to get my social work degree then we moved back to Wyoming in 2012. I went back to school in 2015 to get my Master’s degree through Walla Walla University.

I have always worked with the aging population . As a licensed clinical social worker I am so concerned about our state and approach it has taken to manage mental health in our state.
