I previously served on the Board many years ago and it has been great to meet so many new social workers in Wyoming over the 22 years that I’ve lived here. I am proud to say I have served our communities in this unique field of ours for 30+ years. Settings have included non-profits to large corporations, State agencies, school districts, community colleges, residential and community mental health. I live in Pinedale and run an independent practice licensed in both States of Wyoming and Nebraska. It’s been a rough year for everyone, so I look forward to connecting with my fellow social workers in the area and representing the needs of our region.
